Hi everyone,
I am new to this period so in need of guidance and education. I am interested in 28 mm. I like the appearance of the card stock buildings (Mean Streets) of the Virtual Armchair General. In other periods I have resin and MDF buildings. Use of card stock is new to me. How well does the card stock hold up? I would mount on foam board or MDF.
If interiors are not accessible with these buildings (removable roofs etc), how does that affect game play? I understand there are Mean Sets that are separate and are not intended to fit inside the buildings and afford seem role playing but that seems like a different set-up.

I play mostly Pulp Alley. I seldom have a need for my models to be inside a structure. Most of the action takes place outside. I recently finished my first three block of "Mean Streets". I like the finished product quite a lot. I glued the cardstock to foam core, and the finished model is very sturdy. If I needed to work inside a building, I would likely just use graph paper.

While I think MDF and resin buildings are nicer, I've made several Mean Streets buildings on foam core, taken them to conventions (they're light, and you can stack them any which way), left them forgotten in the trunk of my car for weeks, and the only maintenance they've needed is a little glue.

I like these kits, meant to be printed and glued to foamcore for construction:

They hold up very well once built and there are a couple of city kits with a number of buildings that let you build with or without interiors.
