To help keep kids and adults entertained during the lockdown, Lexus UK has released templates to create paper models of the LF-30 Electrified concept that was revealed at the Tokyo Motor Show in 2019 and the Lexus UX 250h compact SUV, too
The LF-30 concept represents the Lexus vision for a future generation of electrified vehicles. The concept features state-of-the-art technologies including augmented reality, in-wheel electric motors, and autonomous driving.
How to build your paper model
You’ll need access to a colour printer, some paper glue or double-sided tape, and a pair of scissors. This activity is recommended for older children; it should take about an hour to carefully put your model together. You can download additional instructions here.
First, download and print the high-resolution PDF of your chosen Lexus paper model using these links:
You could print the pdf document on A3 paper, rather than A4, to make the building a little less fiddly, with a larger model at the end.
Using scissors, carefully cut out the template, being especially careful not to cut off the grey tabs (these are white on the UX version).
Fold and glue all of these tabs so they adhere to the underside of the adjacent panel – doing so will pull the car into the three-dimensional shape that should resemble your chosen Lexus. Using a ruler when folding will help ensure a perfectly straight folded edge.
Lexus UK invites people to share images of their paper models on its social media channels:
