As a young boy, putting together model cars was fascinating but became too easy. So, he began creating his own model cars and would build them out of everything he could get his hands on. Mostly paper goods.

His now famous model Red Bull RB7 has over 6500 parts – all hand made by Paul. Including the engine, suspension, seat belts, cockpit and brakes. All made from paper goods with a very small exception. For example, the seat belts were made from leftover Christmas ribbon. WOW!

Through a blog post, Red Bull heard of Paul’s passion and skills. They immediately emailed him expressing how impressed they were with what he was doing. They invited him in for an interview. When Paul received this email, he was stunned. But then reality set in and he found himself “running through the house screaming and shouting!”
