Fancy immersing yourself in a craft-filled orgy of paper-folding greatness this festive season? Then get this ultra-realistic Paper Craft kit of the 2015 Yamaha R1-M.

There are two versions of the model available, the Realistic model takes 167 parts to complete whilst the Ultra Realistic takes 914. You’ll need 54 sheets of paper to make the Ultra model which measures 41cm (1:5 scale), the Realistic model measures 35cm (1:6 scale).

Yamaha still also has the plans available for the original pretty little paper-folding beauty too. Well, that’s only half the story with this bit because if you’ve decided on printing off and making this original R1 from folded paper then you’ll need somewhere to keep it, too.


And as far as that goes – how about this paper workshop to go with your paper-based superbike?

As a first-edition model of a first edition of an iconic superbike, this is a cracking way to soak up some slow hours over the festive period – donachthink? Or does it sound too Grinchy to not love this?

Yeah, we thought so too – and we love this.




Fancy FREE plans to make this awesome paper Yamaha R1-M with? Yeah, FREE. And HERE. Original R1 PLUS workshop plans, too!
