These are a bunch of links I've been collecting for a couple years now on making paper buildings. The scale may vary and some may not be active, but it a start.

You may want to go through them and delete the inactive ones.

may be with a litle ajustment of the printer setting you can make these 10mm buildings work.

print them out at 66% of standard size and they work great!
Also, if you like putting bottoms on the buildings, don't forget to leave tabs on the bottom of the walls. They were not drawn on the pieces originally.


a note about the "self print" buildings. They are supposed to be printed on A3 paper (close to 11x17). They may not print correctly directly from the pdf when scaled down. I loaded the pdfs into paint shop pro at 300dpi, then resized them to 66%. Then printed them from PSP using "center on page" option selected.

I apologize if this strays off topic too much, but from one of the links posted, I stumbled on this:

Here's some that look to be too small for Mechwarrior but may scale well to Battletech.

These require scaling down twice (or little more) for Battletech.

A large portion of Hadley's Hope is here, with landing grid and all devices. Great to build a decent spaceport or colony-like settlement.

There are also paper vehicles here - need scaling down, too.

Jan Rukr from Czech is creating really great papercraft models. If You want USS Sulaco in Battletech scale (will require small scaling up and A LOT of work) You can also get it from another page of his (link is on LH sidebar).

Here is a site with some Sim City 3000 models.  They might need adjustments.

Most of this is for MechWarrior Dark Age, but they can always be changed in size ratio.  Of most interest is the Classic Battletech scale Comstar hyper pulse generator.

If one needs a small German town:

http://www.kaukapedia.com/index.php?title=Bastelbogen:_Romantische_Altstadt

Needs scaling down almost twice, as this is in 1:160 scale.

I just found this one - suitable for some House Liao (or wherever Chinese influences are important) urban or suburban area. It is in mech scale.

http://www.hoxity.de/papercraft/gulou_main.html

There is another building on that site, a large stadium, but I don't think it's 1:300 anymore:

These look the best so far.  Going to be downloading them later.  Question though Ratboy can I just use regular paper and then glue them onto either balsa wood or foam board?

Thank you Hikage

You can. I would recommend gluing on to poster board or matte board. Use a spray adhesive (Scotch M77, etc.) to laminate them, other glues will have too much moisture and will cause warping.


[Mods, can this and the prev message be moved to a new thread?]

So instead of Elmers glue stick that I was thinking of using, use instead a spray adhesive?

Instead of spray adhesive You can also use non-acrylic wood lacquer (nitrocellulose one?).

Thanks for that link. Funny, You found me a Polish guy's page I was browsing and did not find it. ;)

Found these nice road sets on GHQ forums you have to scroll done the page a little. The roads are impressive. There also some nice building textures on the previous and next few pages.
