PAPER CRAFT

Assembly Instructions

Thank you for downloading the "YZF-R1" paper craft model. By simply
following this manual while referring to the names and numbers shown on the
parts sheets, you can assemble an authentic-looking replica of the YZF-R1.

Assembly instructions: Fifteen A4-sized sheets.


Paper craft: Fourteen A4-sized sheets with 170 parts in all

These instructions apply only to the "YZF-R1".


These Paper Craft parts are easier to work with when printed out on strong,
thick paper (like postcard stock).
*In creating these Paper Craft models we use 135kg Kent paper stock (0.18mm).

*Use glue and other adhesives only in well-ventilated
areas. Dotted line
*When printing, use a slightly reduced font size as there
are many differences in dimensions depending on the Cut along these lines
type of printer used.

HOW TO ASSEMBLE
Cut out parts marked with an as-
terisk(*).
*Follow the working method and markings carefully.
*Cut carefully along the outter line with a cutting blade,
Exacto-knife or scissors.

One - point Advice Red dots are the reference positions


for gluing surfaces.
*Cut carefully with a cutting blade, Exacto-knife or
scissors.

*For folding parts, first use an awl or other pointed


tool to make a light crease along the dotted or solid
line. This will make the folds straight. Avoid making
strong creases, as this will cause the paper to tear.

*As an adhesive, white, wood glue is recommended.


Avoid over application as this will cause the paper
to wrinkle.

*Before beginning assembly, test adhesive amounts


on extra paper.

*Occasionally, white spots will be apparent on folds


and cuts. Use a marker or pencil to fill-in these spots.
It is recommended that this be done after each stage
of assembly because coloring becomes more diffi-
cult once parts are assembled.
