What an awesome gift for a bike enthusiast. And you can see how much the designer, Shinichi Iwami from Japan, loves bicycles! This tiny paper bicycle model is part of a series he has designed named ‘micro museum’. Its perfect details have come from an in-depth knowledge of bicycles, which with 25 years experience as an amateur racer, Iwami certainly has. Made with thick (0.5mm) black paper, you can build this model with just a scalpel knife, tweezers, a steady hand and glue. The set comes with lasercut parts, instructions and a lovely printed envelope – ideal if you plan to give it as a present. Scale is 1:24, length is 75mm.
