Default Yamaha Papercraft, DIY kit | Must read for Yamaha Lovers

Presenting you Yamaha Papercraft. A site dedicate to get you a Yamaha on your 'desk' sooner than ever before. This is a site which gives a word by word instruction to build a Yamaha out of hard paper sitting at your desk. Frankly speaking, although I have not tried any till now, the instructions and the cut outs are detailed enough to give me the kick !! I am sure just going through the instructions is a thrill in it's self, assembling the forks, headlights, meter console and not to forget the engine, all sitting at home You can take out colored as well as black and white print outs of the components from the site mentioned.

ENJOY !!

PS : Was just thinking, this thread is a result of a global communication !! A Japanese Site discovered in Uganda by an Indian friend informing me, who is sitting in Tanzania, all ready for viewers mostly in India over a server sitting, no idea where on earth.

The list you can make as of now,

Thats interesting.
Ya, Japanese are too good in these. I use to get stuff like this from Japan. It will ahve "everything" you need to assemble, say a car. The Gandham aka robot, is an wonderful example. They have kits for almost everything on earth. cars, ships, animals etc etc.
But expensive
I am currently downloading the instruction. Lets see what it comes out like. Fingers crossed.
Thanks a ton for the link friend.

Think you are right. Cause the friend I got it from is a member of RDD See the world is a small place after all. Just took out a print out too. Will have to buy a nice scissor and try my hands on it in the evening. I am sure it will be a mess here with the lack of proper tools and materials, but good to start practicing

Whoever gets done with one, please post the pics. It will give me more inspiration !!

Thanks Abhi

I have downloaded the color R1 and started working on it.
One thing I can say its not easy as there are many smaller parts they have included to give it a real look.
Wish me luck

Me too working on the R1. Sounds like hours of fun. Wifey is not gonna like it though.

Gonna try scaling it by 2 to see if it is going to be easy to build.

Good Luck Team-BHPians.

While we talk I managed to buy a $4 Scissor, and $2 Glue and 22 pages waiting to be cut to form the R1. I got it printed in normal Bond paper in black and white. I have lost count of time but I am still fiddling with the Front Cowl. HELP !!! This is addictive !!

Here you go. I downloaded and started doing DSC11, using normal bond paper. Man, you need hell lot of patience to do on normal paper. They recommend thinker paper, ofcourse.

Anyway, it took 5 hours to complete this
