Papercraft Blade Runner Police Spinner Perfect for Retiring Paper Replicants

I always loved the flying vehicles in Blade Runner. I think it’s the fact that they could drive on the ground like regular cars, but then do the VTOL think and take off and land on a dime. Probably the most iconic vehicle in the film is the police spinner, and while you still can’t have a real flying car, you can have one made out of paper.

Papercraft master Daumier Smith of Longtail’s Cafe previously built some awesome paper models of the V8 Interceptor from Mad Max, so it was only natural that he’d do another movie car as his next model.

The police spinner model is incredibly detailed, and even has a full cockpit and seating, as well as clear windows and roof, which are cut out of sheets of acetate.

The best thing about this thing is that you can make one for yourself. Sure, it’ll take some precision work with an X-Acto knife to cut out all the tiny components and then carefully glue them together, but when it’s done, it’ll look great.

You can grab a full set of PDFs of the spinner car paper model, along with construction diagrams, over at Longtail’s Cafe.
