Paper Model: Maserati 250F

A few years ago, I designed a paper model of my all-time favorite Grand Prix car, a Maserati 250F. I did it completely from scratch,
drawing it a vector-based illustration program (Adobe Illustrator) so that I could resize it easily without compromising quality.
It takes about 3-4 hours to build it, but the results are
pretty satisfying.

I did this sketch while out of town at 4-on-4 soccer tournament for my youngest son. There was too much action to follow, so I decided to do a sketch.
