This project is for a SOC-R Riverine Boat. The image below is scaled down, but will print out at about 7 inches/17.8cm . The hull is about 90% done and I still need to make the engine deck, driver's rear deck and driver/radar area. It's not an exact copy and it is also a water line type of model, but I did do a quick colored bottom for it. I'm not making guns for this, but Ebbles Miniatures does make a set you could add to this.
May i ask why, being the bottom at the bottom ( ;D ) you choose to not put the tabs on it but on the top? I could have go in the opposite way (so the top piece with the hole attached to the sides, glueing them to the unprinted part of the bottom, and then gluing the printed "floor" on top of that tabs....) but i'm surely missing some design reason...
There are a few advantages to doing it this way: -One is that the holes for the rope lines are much easier to cut out. -The top pieces is a sandwich fold for extra strength. A sandwich fold makes it much easier to align the two pieces together. -The bottom piece has the engine box part attached to it and the alignment for the box really needs to be done after the bottom is in place with the walls. -When attaching the top part to the walls, the glue flaps are much easier to clamp (See the Alligator clamps).
I found construction to be easy. Although I did add chipboard to the model. This adds more strength, but meant that I had to do a lot of extra trimming to get the inside pieces to fit. If you build it without the chipboard you wont have to trim the paper. I need a day or so to go over the file.
It will hold between 11 and 13 minis with 25mm bases.
Vermin King: Not the style you are looking for, but try a search for 'paper theatre' or 'paper theater', and you will find a few pages of epinal figures. Not many, but I know there are a few

shep: Does anyone know where to find decent individual minis of late Roman Republic era civilians? From senator to slave, every mini would be great, as long as they are not legionaires or generals or other military (Praetorian Guard and Roman Vigiles excluded)

oldschooldm: Yup. More power to anyone who tries it. It will only whet the appetite for people who want paper minis that were designed to be paper minis. :-) Fronts and Backs FOREVER! :-) [... it's bait, don't bite it! ... ]

cowboyleland: Now I have seen it. It doesn't advance our hobby, but anyone with half a brain who wanted 2nd rate figures could easily figure this out for themselves so I guess he isn't doing any harm.
