I am finished with the scenery for my Manchukuo 1945 project. There were some other things I wanted to add, but not all of it turned out right.

First up, the Village. Intact buildings for a street scene, and lots of vehicles as cover or objectives.

Next up are the ruins. A nice little bombed out area of a city, or can be interspresed with the village buildings above. I evolved my style while I was making these, in the back you can see just the walls glued to the bases, then I began adding the ruined floors and then the black sand and gravel as well. I may go back and update the older ones at some point.

Finally, we have the scatter terrain, just things to add to the scene and maybe provide some cover or obstacles. Lots of burning stuff to really bring the idea of "active warzone" to life.

I haven't included the non-papercraft items. I have some stands of trees, a batch of civilian casualties for more "active warzone" atmosphere, some more vehicles… but this is about the papercrafting.

Fantastic build and collection! Your experience with paper models shows. Every time I attempt a 3D paper model I am left disappointed by my lack of skill.

Did you print these yourself? Inkjet or laser printer?

Thanks, Jeff

I think they look great. Who makes that stuff?

jhancock, thank you. I get them printed at Office Depot, so it is color laser printing. I am between printers right now.

79thPA, thank you. The ruins are all from Dave Graffam Models, the buildings and well are modified from Worldworks Games (RIP) and papermodels.de (also RIP, now Papierschnitzel,) the trucks and bus are all modifications (mostly reskinning) of free stuff, and the scatter stuff is mostly Worldworks and Papierschitzel.

It seems I put the gun nest in there too, that's a plastic sandbag emplacement from a bag of army men.
