Manchukuo 1945 Papercraft Scenery
« on: June 04, 2018, 11:39:18 PM »
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, and some more vehicles... but this is about the papercraft.

 Very nice, a reminder (if it were needed) that paper scenery can look great  - I was thinking that your approach to representing the series of clustered explosions looked interesting - then realised it was a bowl of oranges ;D

Are all the vehicles paper?! If so who makes them? Everything looks amazing by the way.  :-* :-* :-*

Ooh, this is some excellent papercrafty inspiration. And I am also extremely curious about those vehicles!

 Thank you, guys

The intact buildings are my kitbashes from commercially available products by Worldworks Games and papermodels.de. I haven't done enough alteration to them that I may share the files :(

The trucks however were a collaboration between myself and another papercrafter, and we decided that we have probably altered the (free) source images enough to at least share themon forums.

Type 94 truck: https://www.dropbox.com/home/Japanese%20Trucks

I hope the links work, I am trying to do this from my phone.

Thanks, Punkrabbit the first link worked but the second did not. What about the bus and the car in the last Pic? I appreciate your sharing very much.

I will try to get the bus into dropbox later, and track down the site that I downloaded the 30s Chevy from (free, and in both new and wrecked condition.)

OK, here we go:

Buses: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/fnsbf3fcspr6ejv/AABbmhIiCdCaU7zYKZV2XYova?dl=0 Not just the Manchukuo bus I kitbashed, but all of the 30s and 40s buses I have

ZIS-5 Russian truck: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/02xbgl8g2mm5znh/AAAuN6rNOalVL6wsysQgL9RLa?dl=0

Type 94 Japanese truck:https://www.dropbox.com/sh/vepj2equ0djamd1/AAClIhVDqxfmG_8PXos9qSYva?dl=0 Several different versions for Japan and Manchukuo, including one with a busted tire.

1930s Chevy Coupe: http://ravensblight.com/papertoys.html And lots of other fun and exciting things to enhance your wargaming experience.

Rickshaw: http://drivethrurpg.com/product/204408/Samurai-Castle-Builder-Rickshaw?manufacturers_id=9531 I found it to be a little big (middle left of third picture) so I scaled it at 75% (I think) and did it again and it looks much better next to 28mm miniatures (front center)

So I hope this can make your games better and don't cut your fingers!
