• Ford Escort scale model made from precious materials

    Building scale model cars is a wonderful way for enthusiasts to pass the time and "own" the cars of their dreams. They're usually built from plastic kits, but one jeweler took his love affair for the Ford Escort to new heights. The scratchbuilt Ford Escort Mk II seen here is done in 1/25 scale and made entirely from silver, gold, diamonds, and other precious stones. The meticulous creation comes from professional jeweler Russell Lord. The Brit has worked with fine jewelry for decades and owned 55 actual Ford Escorts. He started work on this miraculous model car, which depicts a...

  • Papercraft Audi A7

    The 2011 Audi A7 might be big but it isn't particularly heavy for its size. Weighing in at around 3,900 pounds it's around 300 pounds lighter than its rival the BMW 5-Series GT despite the Quattro drivetrain. You can thank the part aluminum construction for that. Still, it could be lighter. And smaller. Maybe even made of paper. Okay, so artist Tarasa Lesko's papercraft Audi A7 won't get you to the shops in all weathers (in fact, it'd probably struggle a little in rain. Or a light breeze...) but it's certainly impressive. Tarasa made the paper replica using 285 sheets of paper printed with...
