If you can’t afford a real 2014 Corvette Stingray, here’s an unusual option. Just build your own – out of paper!
A guy who labels himself Visual Spicer has created a papercraft replica of his wife’s current dream car – the C7 Stingray – that they have hanging on the wall of their home.
PDFs and PDOs of the Stingray that you can use to build your own Stingray out of paper are available online for less than $10 – definitely a bargain compared to the real thing!
The paper model measures 24 inches long after being assembled from 106 parts on 23 pages of paper. Wausau 110lb (200gm) Premium Cardstock paper is used for larger models and Wausau 65lb (176gm) Bright White Cardstock paper for smaller models.
Visual Spicer says he has been hooked on computer aided design for nearly 20 years and discovered the world of papercrafting in 2008 by accident and has become “completely hooked since,” he says.
“Papercraft making allows me to express myself creatively through computer-aided design and hands-on construction combined,” he says. “Best of all, paper is inexpensive, lightweight and requires minimal storage space. With this versatile material, the possibilities are endless.”
Based on the multiple photos we saw of the papercraft Stingray, including some in a Chevrolet showroom with a real C7, this could be a beautiful and interesting project for someone who has the patience for it.
You can watch a series of videos showing Visual Spicer constructing his Stingray, but get prepared to be there a long time as the videos last hours.
