Last year while paying another visit to the closest Costco shop, I came across a huge pallet of model kits in paper for Harry Potter and Starwars; going to talk about the HP stuff later since it is a fantasy related model and it is still NIB to focus on Starwars ones.
Like most of you, my dear friends, I used plastic scifi toys to depicting vehicles and spaceships to liven terrains up, mostly converted Kenner' stuff (like the Falcon or the Imperial attack base for instance) and/or model kits. But moving from one side of the Atlantic to another was impossible for them and so I sold them all before leaving Euroland. Ever since I was looking for something way lighter than hard plastic to replace them ... finally thanks to some OldHammer blog, I learnt about papercraft models.. and I have to admit I love that idea: lightweight models, easy to move around .. but a bit fragile -as casual plastic kits by the way.
(Received most of the SW range as Xmas and birthday gifts (*joy*) from wife, friends and relatives - and still waiting for one last model still in transit somewhere.)
All models are in good quality cardboard with very fragile, if not flimsy, elements. Assembly manuals are good but sometime one will need to think twice before gluing parts; even if elements are commutable most of times.
Scale is 1/64.. and frankly suiting my OOP 28mm Armageddon minis.
Jawas' Sandcrwaler is 1/78 and my OOP Ork raiders do already adopt it as their mobile base -need to customize it with more orkish stuff.
Slave I is 1-60... and could be used as an Eldar Corsair ship...
The Imperial Light Destroyer (still WIP) is 1/492... could fit easily with 15mm minis or 28mm ones after some serious work onto details like bridge. Adding a new cockpit and more weapon ports to turn it into some interceptor for example.
X-wing is 1-35, Millenium Falcon 1/72, AT-AT 1/61, AT-ST 1/55 and Snowspeeder 1/42... all those are WIP
