While I'm waiting for my printer to arrive, all I can do is Photoshop all day. So I've finished most of the cut-and-fold lines for a new Hunter's Lodge, a simple cabin with accessible interiors. I'll post updates here once I get a chance to print a paper test.
I'm putting textures on this model now and should be done with it in a couple of days. The texture options on this one are truly insane: 3 colors of bricks, stone, wood, stone foundation, plaster, rough plaster, 3 styles of wall beams, stone corners, 3 roof textures (so far)... and I haven't even started on the windows, doors and floors yet.
Just with the different wall combinations, you could very easily get 20 different-looking models from this one. Or 60 models, if you factor in the roofs. I love this stuff.
There are so many textures on this model that it's really not accurate to call it a hunter's lodge. It's a general-purpose cabin, small house or shop, guest house, etc., so I'm just going to call it The Cabin.
This model is very nearly ready for release. All I need are some photos of the test build to create the advert graphics. If Ric is feeling better, he might send over the photos he took of the test build he did for me. If I can't get the photos from him, I should have my new printer here tomorrow and be able to create my own paper test and photos, and get the job done that way.
(Normally I post something like this at the end of my design threads, so here it is...)
This may look like a simple little model, but it's packed with texture options and you should get a lot of use out of it. The Cabin has a fully-textured interior and a lift-off roof for easy access. Scores of distinct looks are possible by mixing and matching the textures in the multi-layered PDFs. And if you don't want to mess about with the PDF layers, this kit comes with two prepared looks that are easy to print out right away.

Awesome kit! I love it. I can only recommend one improvement; a base plate with multiple textures as versatile as the model itself. I will probably be building several of these in the next few months. The available textures make it usable in multiple eras. Nice job, Dave! Check out my "Imperial Liquor Store." I'm a long, long ways behind you, but for an old guy working with paint an no training, I think I'm not doing too bad. I just like your models a whole lot better. I own over fifty and don't have room to display all my builds. A lot of them got wrecked in a move a couple of years ago and I am slowly rebuilding the collection. It is hard to pick a favorite, but this little gem is certainly in the running due to its simple design, economic build, and utility. If I had a camera, I would add pictures to this post showing how well the Cabin blends in with fantasy, Victorian/Steampunk, and frontier buildings. It is a definite hit.
Face piles of trials with smiles, it riles them to believe that you perceive the webs they weave.
Vermin King: I didn't post at the time (fairly angry still), but my June Papercraft meeting was cancelled by the venue without even notifying me. They said they would call the previous participants, but I don't know if I can trust them

sergeantmajormarkoff: I like it very much. Somehow seems like it would make the transition between Arrakis, Barsoom, and the Sahara very nicely.

Vermin King: Is it the Windows updates or the Firefox updates that won't allow me to select where to download pdf's any more?
