    That paper model was a one off, you'll have to design one yourself to get one. It is missing many many details, on the rings, where it counts. As a side note, they did not make a model of it for the movie as it proved too difficult, so it was a C.G. creation.

    As far as the other ones, might want to start learning to design, because that's the only way you will get models of these. ;)

    You would be surprised what you can do with Paint. I know a prolific designer who designs many models just using paint. That will be the only way to get some of these models. I have all of YMjr's models, they are excellent!!

    The McLaren and Ferrari below had fully detailed engines, suspensions and interiors. The bodies come off to reveal these. They are not simple to build, but results, with builder enhanced detail reveal stunning models

    I also recommend going to this site and downloading every model there, and their instructions, by right clicking on see background picture, and saving it. There is an incredible collection here, and the Lotus is the best example of this car offered in paper. If you can't find half a dozen models here to fill you automotive needs, nothing will.

    Link= http://www5b.biglobe.ne.jp/~kamaboko/1_30model/ lots of different liveries and body styles on this model. The Porsche 911S models come out great, despite not having an interior.

    I thought you would like these. I know of a very, very nice Lotus Europa, that comes out great. If you take extra time, and cut out the wheels properly, you will be shocked how well this model comes out. Make sure you download all 3 files, and definitely download the instructions, you will need them!! ;)
