Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Materials

What you need:

printing template ( check the description of the youtube video for the link or scroll down in this tutorial )
printer (printing files in A4 and US Letter)
sheets of paper stock/paper in the color you like
paper glue ( hot glue can save time in some occasions )
ruler
pencil
cardboard
cutting mat

Step 2: Print / Cut / Score / Fold

print the template on the paper you like and stat cutting out all the parts. After that you can score all the folding lines with a scoring tool ( if you don't have something like that you can use an empty ballpoint pen, the blunt side of a butter knife, a nail file or anything like that). The scoring is making sure you get nice folds. :)

Step 3: Glue the Body

Use the big parts to assemble the body first and include the fenders.

Step 4: Finish the Bumpers

The bumpers are a bit tricky since the parts are very small. It is possible however to make them nice :P After completing them you can glue them onto the body of the cyber truck.

Step 5: Assemble the Inner Frame

Use the inner frame now and reinforce it with cardboard. In this way you will have a solid base for the car and later for when you can mount the wheels.

Step 6: Assemble the Wheels

Not an easy step to make the wheels very nice so some experience would be welcome :) Cut out the wheel parts and start with the sidewall of the tire. Continue with the mudguard and then measure how long the strip should be. After that cut out a circle of cardboard to insert into the wheel. When all 4 wheels are done you can lift the body a little bit from the table and glue the wheels onto the car.

Step 7: Finish!

you're done! let me know what you think and if you make one please share it :)

Wow! Now anyone can make a full size Cybertruck out of cardboard, mount it over a regular car body, and tell the world you have a Cybertruck! Oh, if you cover it with aluminum foil, it looks as the real truck, although the panels are not sledgehammer proof or the windows impact proof. ;-)
