Paper Craft City Has any one every use these product, it mostly print, cut and paste I'm sure. I'm just wondering if anyone has pictures comparing them to 15mm figures?

I can't speak for the other buildings, but the "hotel" shown on the "Buildings" page is a modified version of a free building called "Drake's Radio and TV" from the Twilight Street series. It's available here on Wargame Vault:

I mention this building specifically because I have the original. I can't speak for the others, but this one does make me more than a little suspicious about the rest of them.

Indeed, I have great reason to suspect their Street Terrains series.

No reason to doubt your suspicions, but would you say a little more as to why? I will also say that the dumpster in that photo I mentioned earlier is DEFINITELY from a Twilight Streets set. The other building may be as well, as the vent design looks familiar.

As y'all know, I'm a big papercrafter. I jave seen every component offered somewhere else before. But I view so many sites, I don't know where.

I see too many models in that set that are copies of other peoples products, both commercial (Microtactix's Twilight Street) and freeware (Tommygunner's free buildings).

And THAT'S why I ask, I don't want to be supporting someone who is taking from others.

BrianW, I swear some of them look exactly like certain old Worldworks Games tile sets, while another appears to be a Toposolitario free set.

Oh, OK. Given what everyone else has said, I don't doubt that you are right.
