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:
