I recently got a Cricut Maker and decided to try to make use of the Ebbles models (cutting paper by hand has always been the most tedious part for me). I imported the PDF file into Illustrator and redrew the cut and score lines.
Originally, I was planning on using the original artwork for a "print & cut", but I was having a problem with the registration of the image not matching the cut lines. So I setup another set of vector lines to use the Maker's pen tools. That worked out good enough for me. I even went as far as having the launch tubes and sensor lenses be cut out, and then gluing a different color paper behind it.
It went together really well. Took less than an hour to build. Maybe closer to a half hour? Now I'm considering making it in 15mm scale.
There are three sets line layers. They're for cut, score, and draw. I'm not sure how it might work for something other than Circuit's Design Space. But once imported, you'll have to manually convert one set of lines for scoring, and another to writing/pen. (or turn off the layer you don't need?)
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)
