OK, so here is the papercraft Coach House model from Dave Graffam Models. This went together wonderfully. And a 28mm dude there for scale.

Beautiful! Just 110# card stock, or did you reinforce it somehow? Cheers!

Excellent model. We used to use that one for Bolt Action.

Just 110# cardstock. It may get a base some day.

Superb! I am coming to prefer paper models for more and more in this hobby.

Nice work. I am tempted by paper more and more.

100% agree on going paper modeling! Cheaper, faster, no risk of breaking and looks great on the table.

Dave Graffam Models are fantastic too, I have lots of them. I build them on 3/16" foam board for strength and use matte board for the roofs. Very sturdy.

I also make my own with a simple program for making model buildings called Evans Model Builder.

My friend wanted some buildings for his Walking Dead game, here is a simple paper farm house I made:

Only added some simple bass wood for porch pillars.

He then wanted a Police Station for his Walking Dead game which he said was set in Cynthiana, Kentucky. Well I thought rather then just build a generic police station I would build the REAL police department building in Cynthiana:

And with paper model and some wood bits, I did this:

Software looks awesome, but no MAC version. Too bad.

I second Kim's comments on Evans Model Builder software. Here is a little something I made with the help of some "popular named brick" pieces:

Ditto to Fred. I bought the brick yard 5-6 years ago and there was discussion about a MAC version but, alas, not yet. The Brick Yard is worth it, however.
