Milan Paulus is a Niki Lauda fan from Czech Republic. After the tragic accident of the Austrian at the Nurburgring he decided to celebrate the qualities of Ferrari, the car that with its resistance - unlike the very light and deadly Lotus, had saved the life of the beloved champion. And he decided to channel his passion for the Red into making paper models, all in 1: 6 scale, whose perfection of details and correspondence to the originals are amazing.
The dream of this wonderful craftsman is to sell his collection to Ferrari itself. Milan specializes in Ferrari F1 paper models since 2008. As of now, 57 are completed. His goal is to make all (104 expected) Ferrari F1 cars made … He is one of those Formula 1 enthusiasts who create amazing things without receiving broad recognition. His passion is everything Ferrari, and it turned his living room into a small museum filled with unique models of the Maranello cars. Mr. Aleš Norský had a chance to chat with him recently.
