Artist Jonathan Brand is working his way through a papercraft 1:1 model of a 1969 Mustang coupe, beginning with the engine, and (eventually), making his way through the rest of it. It's fabulous all in one piece, as shown here, but even more impressive considered as a series of components, each tiny piece carefully handmade and assembled in gleeful, obsessive detail.
This is a project that I'm currently working on. When finished every part of the 1969 Mustang coupe that i restored and sold to purchase a diamond engagement ring will be recreated out of paper in 1:1 scale.

This is a continuation of the diamond series and an earlier show titled "one for another." It is made entirely of archival inkjet prints on paper. The process began with creating a 3D computer replica which is then unfolded flat and printed on an inkjet printer. Each piece is then cut out and glued together to form a 3D replica of the original.
