This model as I may say is the first detailed paper model of a car that I ever made. I was inspired to make this cute mini car when I was playing a game in my Galaxy tab inside a toilet and I saw a shampoo product advertisement which feature this Mercedes Benz Smart Fortwo car as the main prize. Then I searched on Google about this car and decided to make the model. If you have build some of Paper Replika models you should say this model is quite simple. All the detailed texture make this model looks complicated but I believe it is not. If you follow the instructions orderly, you will have no problem building it. At first I make this model in 1/24 scale but on the second thought I changed it to 1/16.
