I've just put together a paper test for a two-story paper model house with accessible interiors. I didn't even take it easy on myself. This model has not-quite-plumb angles and an overhanging upper story for that classic Tudor look. I need to make some tweaks and refinements, and to finish assembling the chimney pieces. It also needs a flight of stairs.
Here's my first paper test to make sure the connector pieces work. You can see that I'm just using "beams" affixed to the bottoms of the levels to keep them in place. It seems like the simplest solution, and it works.
Thanks! I think this has potential to be a hot one. I need to come up with a good name for it, since I've already used "Tudor House." I like the idea that a war widow lives here with her dutiful children, so I might call this the Widow's House.
So! Before anyone asks, I'm not going to include any interior furnishings for this model. There's a fireplace (3D piece), but that's all I plan to include. I can develop other furniture as a separate set, which seems like a good idea if I continue to design models with accessible interiors.
Right now I'm starting on the textures, just doing my basic setup stuff like putting wood-textures on the undersides of the roof.
I got a lot of work done on the textures tonight and I'm really happy with the way it's turning out. My remaining to-do list is short enough that I think I can finish it Monday, and do the final prep and publication on Tuesday.
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.
