Those familiar with Japanese culture have likely encountered the art of papercraft. You may have even built a paper car or truck yourself. But we know you’re secretly wondering what would happen if some insane origami craftsmen built an entire full-size car out of paper.
Honda recently did just that with their retro-styled Honda N-One, a modern kei car we like so much that we even test drove one. Inspired by the N360 of the 70s, it’s one of the few Honda designs to draw heavily from the company’s past. Epson also built a life-sized Honda NSX GT car a few years ago.
And here’s what happens when you have to tear it down.
If you’d like to build your own papercraft N-One or N360, just follow this link to Honda’s website to download. These are not your average papercraft. They’re extremely detailed and relatively huge in 1:9 scale.
You can even download the 1:1 scale PDF of the N-One, and if you had a large enough printer you could conceivably scale up the sheets to put an N360 in your living room alongside it. If any of you readers are crazy enough to do this, send us a pic and we’ll give you a prize.
