Awesome: Man Builds F1 Car... From Cardboard...

This is something pretty special indeed... watch a man build a 2018 specification Formula One car... using just cardboard and glue.


Ok so this isn't going to be much good in the rain, nor will it be heading out onto a circuit during its life, and it probably isn't going to be strong enough to sit in anytime soon.. but it is still one heck of a cool achievement and well worth the time to sit down and watch the five minute plus video.

Designed and built by the exceptionally impressive YouTuber The Q, a site dedicated to making things from unusual materials, this is just one of those videos that you stumble across and think to yourself "wow" - that's something really pretty epic. Actually, it brings back memories of attempting much the same thing myself when I was a wee nipper, cracking on in the box pile at the local Kwik Save whilst my folks went shopping. Alas my efforts never reached these incredible levels, in fact they never really amounted to much at all, but it just goes to show what one can achieve with some dedication, a lot of glue and a determination to make it happen..

According to The Q, the 2018 style Formula One cardboard car took around 250 hours to make, consuming nearly 50 square meters of cardboard and over 100 glue gun sticks.... and is complete at a 1.3 : 1 scale.

Impressive stuff indeed..

Great job but what 2018 F1 car does it most closely resemble? I'm saying Red Bull although ignore the side-pods and it could be Ferrariesque.

If you look at the size of the tires I don’t think the car is to scale , but he’s done an amazing build .
Well these cars are almost pushing 6 meters in length so way off scale yeah, would fill his room. :D

I meant proportion rather then scale , but sure, should have been more specific
Felt like nose should be longer , but maybe you guys are right that it's just the overall scale
