The Motor Pool project is kind of a big one, I'd wager. Bigger than, say, a Hoatd of 20 assorted flat standees.
Hi! I'm Harry, and I am a hobby addict. I prefer papercraft scenery to use alongside my 28mm metal and plastic miniatures, and am not afraid to mix and match my hobby media. I game sci-fi, fantasy, and historical (including Ancients, Dark Ages, Renaissance, and World War II Pacific Theater (oddly in both 28mm infantry and 3mm aircraft.)

True, but I like building models and seeing how different designers do things. I'm not building all of them. I did two of the 4X4's, one of the 6X6's, the initially submitted APC (two if you count the one that was too small), the Police Tactical, and I've started on the MUT.
It really helped having folks format their entries before submitting, but I still have to have at least one of each for the promo photos.
I'm starting to have a little sympathy for mproteau when he was doing everything including cutfiles, which I don't do.
But those little projects get me thinking differently on how to handle things, which helps me design better. If I hadn't done Herbie, I'd have never found the method used on the EZ Build Beetle. If I hadn't found it, I don't think I'd have been able to do the Kurogane. If I hadn't done the Stupid Truck, I don't think I'd have come up with a way to vary the back ends, which will come in handy on the M-ATV, which is going to be constructed as a combination of the EZ Builds and the Stupids.
But these things all take time
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!
I've got so many projects I want to get done, and crafting random models isn't what floats my boat. I mean, some models do, but most don't. So, when I was putting all the hoards together, many of the models were assembled simply so I could take a photo before recycling the paper. :-P
I wish I had hard numbers for how many people actually use cutfiles so I could complain about the things that get in the way of making cutfiles easier. If few people actually use cutfiles, then putting any burden on model creators isn't terribly defensible.
Re hard numbers: On my Patreon 50% have chosen the reward level with cut-files. I was actually surprised that there are so many. But it makes creating the cut-files easier for me now I thought I was just making them for oldschooldm

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)

chiefasaur: Sweet tutorial! Now I know how to make paper minis ;P

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.
