Unlike our current fossil fueled F1 cars, future racers are powered by tiny nuclear reactors producing immense amounts of energy, allowing the events to become so high-speed that the races only last 10 seconds at a time.
Within these intense races the speeds exceed that of the sound barrier and a single wrong move can result in a catastrophic crash, so the cars are driven by tried and tested robots. These robots are the only thing with reactions fast enough to keep these violent vehicles from becoming nothing but scrap and fire. Download and build your own Electracer in the comfort of your own home, just print, cut, fold and glue.
This nuclear powered race car is ready to blast past the opposition at break-neck speeds. This model features a heavily detailed texture and advanced paper engineering techniques resulting in a simple to build model.
Designed for the Urban Paper Collective in the model was originally released in 2015 alongside other members race themed paper toys.
1 – Download
Click the download button above to receive a .zip folder, inside this you will find the flat template of the paper toy along with a reference photo. Selected Fold Up Toys also include blank versions of the template. Open the flat template in your image viewer/editor of choice and print.
Print the model onto paper or card, Fold Up Toys recommends a 250gsm card stock for best results, however all models on the Fold Up Toys website should work perfectly well on standard A4 printer paper. On the bottom of the flat template you will see a recommended card stock weight (e.g. 2050gsm) for this models specific design.
3 – Cut
Cut the model out along the solid outline, some models will have sections that need to be cut with a craft knife, younger builders are recommended to get help from an adult.
4 – Fold
Follow the key on the models flat template, folding up or down along the dotted lines as instructed. Some model builders like to score along the fold lines (go over the lines in advance) with a craft knife or empty ball point pen to get a more precise fold.
5 – Glue
Most models have numbered tabs, glue the tabs in order to complete the model. If you get stuck, feel free to message the designer using the contact page with a photo of what you’re working on and they’ll be happy to help you.
Share your creation on social media, it’s always fun to see Fold Up Toys out in the wild.
