    If I was Niki Lauda, I would now take my cap off. Well done, @andae23 !

    Just thinking, can photo paper be used for this? So the finish wouldn’t be so matte? I think there are some photo papers out there with the same hardness/weight.

    BTW great one @andae23 !!!

    Guys, I’ve had a problem. I can’t get to print the paper, seems to be stuck before even going into the printer. I’ve tried different configurations in the control panel but it’s no use. Can you give me some tips to print it? My paper is 150g thick I believe. Thank you very much in advance.

    For many more Paper cars, go to http://www.brawngpmodeling.proboards.com/ .
    I’ve made at least 70 quite similar to these; there are almost all the cars from the past few years, plus several from previous years.

    Regarding paper, I use 200g. If the printer won’t take it, try putting several sheets in to prop the card up slightly, or prop it up using several sheets of normal paper (making sure the card is on top.)

    Thanks a lot @michaeldobson13 !! I was able to do it by placing two sheets at a time. I’m starting the floor, and it really is challenging! And judging from what you guys said, it’s gonna get worse!

    I like @andae23‘s better.

    I can’t help noticing that the other E20s are missing a crucial detail on the rear wing though.

    It seems Lotus have removed the pdf instructions and print out kit. Anyone know of a working link as I’m thinking about giving this a go myself!
