Having completed my Lamborghini Aventador Hot Pursuit papercrafts in early part of 2013, I got an unsettling urge to build another big model, after a two year break since my 7ft Gundam project. The idea was to build a near-life-size replica of my Aventador Interceptor model, but small enough that I could get it out of my house. After proposing the idea to my wife, she dared me to it and the challenge was on!
For this project I experimented with new materials, new techniques, and larger prints than any of my previous papercraft models. The name Aventador A-E2 is derived from the Architectural E2 paper sheets used for the prints, mounted to thick chipboard material for added strength.
Overall I am very pleased with the final outcome of this experiment. I learned many new lessons and the artwork makes a great display on my wall. The completed model measures 8' x 3.8' x 2.1' (244 x 115 x 63cm), weighs 25lb (11.3kg), making it my biggest and heaviest papercraft model to date. ...Did I mention most expensive? The cost for printing and materials set me back $1,000, but the creative experience was well worth it.
Watch this video to see how this gigantic papercraft was assembled.
