1952 Vespa Faro Basso Paper Model

1952 Vespa Faro Basso Scooter Paper Model Roman Holiday

Whoa . . . hold on there. Before you get too excited I must let you know that the instructions are in Japanese and I haven’t been able to find templates to print out that are bigger than postage stamps.

Now that I’ve got the bad news out of the way I can tell you that this is a model of the scooter Audrey Hepburn rode in “Roman Holiday.” And this is possibly the most detailed paper scooter model I’ve ever come across. The 150 cc engine is even represented – just lift up the right cowl!

In the meantime I’ll be keeping an eye out for higher res templates and instructions in English for you papier fiends.

Thanks to Daniel S. for this find!

  1. Hi Najah! Unfortunately this is called “rare swag” for a reason. I would set up an eBay “Saved Search” for it on the off chance one comes up for auction. Good luck.
