We've all screwed around with the cutting and folding fun that results from paper model making over here at the Autoblog Craft Workshop (not a real thing), but we've yet to dive into a project with real scale. Thankfully, dedicated hobbyists the world over are taking care of the heavy lifting for us on this front.

Years back we brought you images of an Epson team mid-build with a full-scale Honda NSX racecar, and that project might still be the granddaddy of the genre (though this Audi A7 and this Bugatti Veyron are pretty good, too). But the Lamborghini Aventador police interceptor model seen here, measuring eight-feet long, is right up there. Gaming fans will recognize the Need For Speed inspiration for the wood pulp Lambo, and after watching the fast-motion video of the entire build process we should all be able to recognize the hard work that went into the car's completion.

Taras Lesko is the designer behind this mammoth paper project; you can read a bit of detail about what went into the build on his website, or you can scroll down to watch it for yourself.

      Given the price of printer ink, it might have been cheaper to buy a real one.

      "Life-Size"

      Incredible? Definitely Yes. Life-size? Definitely No. The story says the model is 8 feet long and, after some research, I approximate the real car is about 16 feet, so saying the model is 50% scale would be about right.

      Apparently Seyth Miersma is only 3 feet tall and everything in his life is half-scale for normal people!

      An Aventador is probably one of the best supercars to model out of paper, I mean its bodywork is kind of metal/carbon fiber/plastic origami anyways.
