I have always been amazed at the intricate detail that goes into Papercraft modelers’ works, and this was no exception. Having observed a friend’s (XP) slow and steady progress in building a 80cm tall Optimus Prime out of paper was simply.. mind-blowing. It took him about 5 – 6 months, and 250 sheets of A5 paper to completion. This could easily put many commercial toys to shame! Scroll down and marvel at the creation.

This will give a good sense of its scale.
