Thanks for the TVAG suggestion further upthread - I'll have to get one of their PDFs to check it out! Their pre-printed stuff isn't actually that much more expensive than the PDFs, either.

I also like their 'Mean Sets' idea - doing the rooms of one building is mentioned in a bunch of the 45A scenarios, but for some reason hadn't sunk into my head yet.

As for the custom O Scale railroading stuff - gorgeous, but the cost!  :o  :o  :o

This site;

http://www.illinoishistory.gov/ps/construct_mainstreet.htm

has been presented here before but is worth looking at. It's at 1/87 scale but can be resized for printing.

Nice, but too small.. being HO, you'd have o 'blow them up' somewhat to make 28 mm buildings - but maybe the graphics can take it..?

Don't forget Ebob's Stalag Luft III buildings. These are easy to make and produse nice buildings that have so many uses. Even better, the downloads are free :)

I really like that art deco "Senior Citizen's Building from there: http://www.illinoishistory.gov/ps/construct_mainstreet_elgin.htm

Now to find a way to get it up to 1/60 or so for 28mm... a number of the walls already fill the entire sheet, so it's going to be a bit of a challenge...

I cant really speak for any of the other paper manufacturers, but I have got a whole shedload of Workldworks stuff, which in some cases can be suitable for Pulp games.

As a rundown

Shellendrak MAnor - ideal for old manor houses and the like, it does have a nice roadster which is very cool. Think the o'connels residence in the mummy II. Return to Shellendrak gives a further set of roadsters, which we are going to use in a gangster style car wars of the roaring 20's

This one has a practice turret attached to the roof, it still needs the armour plating on the windows...

The Legend of Skull cove is really handy for native village, dugout canoes a fab skull rock, not to mention jungle type plants, rocks, cliffs and jetties etc.  THis is the one that I am using for my pirate game and will be using for my pulp game too.


This is the skull rock - part of a pirate game we did.

BAsically I have loads and loads of the different sets from worldworks...sometimes I get the set for a particular item....

Hope this helps
Cheers
MAen
