Thanks again Everyone!

The 'block' rather than just a single building is a wonderful idea

Thanks Mike! Since I'll most likely have to transport everything to play, I thought blocks would be less fuss than having to set up and break down a bunch of buildings every time.

Seriously drool worthy!

Need to do some buildings for a Sandpebbles type game. These are inspirational.

I can't add much to what's been said, this is wonderful.

 I am a big fan of paper builds and I think your decision to use a textured roof makes all the difference really lifting it.

Thanks for posting is very inspirational.

Cheers

Absolutely stunning.  Wonderfully imaginative, superb attention to detail and brilliantly executed.  Well done!  :-* :-* :-*

Hi All,

  I just got back from Hong Kong and used the opportunity to grab pics of more shop signs for Chinese buildings:

Hi Chris
Better late than sorry, I saw this when you 1st posted but was travelling with no great download allowance and have only just got back to it.
Your paper builds have been a great inspiration and I have followed your lead doing some western buildings, which are greatly enhanced by textures and posters from the net as you have done.
So thanks for the further link to theses bits and pieces, I do hope to use some of them in a pulp town set in S.W. Asia or maybe Africa that will have a small Chinese community.
Great Blog as well.
Cheers

So, I know I've been neglecting this project for a long time, but I've finally created as second block of buildings:







More pics and construction info can be found on the blog:
