The SuperCar.


Bond. James Bond....

No...Cardstock, actually.

The supercar.  I don't think this one has machine gun hubcaps or missile headlights...but you never can tell.

Comes in the only appropriate supercar colours: Red and Black.

 (once again, the awesome Klingon paper figs are Okum's)

Here's the links:

Supercar Red.

Supercar Black.

The Ambulance Mod.


The Ambulance.

Because playing with paper models is dangerous business, and someone could get hurt.

Same template as the Delivery Van.

The Brinks Truck Mod.

 

Another mod for the delivery van.
This time the van that delivers money....big money.

A great centerpiece for a little action.  A target for all those budding supervillians needing a little cashy-money to fund their evil plots.

This side view graphic doesn't show the little armoured windows front and back as well.


Here's the download.

The Tactical Response Van Mods.



Here's a sideview of the two Police Tactical Response Vans.

One armoured, one not so much...I guess it depends on the department's budget...?


Here's the links to the model files (JPGs, one page each)

The Commercial Vans.


A couple of working vans.
For deliverymen, electricians, plumbers, carpenters, SWAT teams.
Or for supervillians trying to steal the Statue of Liberty one piece at a time...or plant a dirty nuke...or deliver a giant hypnotic squid...OK, you get the picture. 

Any colour you want, as long as its white. 
At least for now...maybe later I'll get to some tradesmen like signage, and an actual SWAT, Brinks Truck, and/or FED-EX mod.
And a ladder....that van really needs a ladder attached to the roof...!
Once again, the federal agent figs in the pic are Dark Mook's from Cardboard Warriors

Here's the links:  (JPGs,  single page each)

Both built pretty much the same way as the sedan from the previous post.

The Big Cars.


The big, anonymous grey sedan...like the one Agent Coulson drives (you know he doesn't own it, it's more like a lease...).   In a few dull, bureaucratic colours, but with a police cruiser and taxi option as well.
(the various law enforcement agents are Dark Mook's, from the Cardboard Warriors Forum)

These models are the start of a larger plan to create a whole parking lot of various 25-30mm-ish (60th scale) "regular" cars.  At least one version of most of the North American car classes...full size, compact, sub-compact, crossover...etc....in a few "common" colours for each.

Enough to populate any inner city, freeway, parking lot or street scene with a bit of variety.

The plan is to make them fairly generic in style, but seeing as I come from a "Ford" family, they're likely to resemble Fords a little more than others.

And they have bottoms! So your scene will still look good during an Alien invasions with big rolling, car flipping explosions...or an unruly zombie hoard tipping cars in search of a snack...or a plain, good old "Hulk smash!!!!"


So...the first off the assembly line is your Grandfather's sedan (which is also what the Cops and Cabbies drive):

Here are the links (each one is a jpg about a half page in size):

Navy Sedan

Dark Grey Sedan

Burgundy Sedan

Police Cruiser

Taxi-Cab

Sorry, no printed instructions, but they are farily straightforward to put together.
Make sure to score the front/top/back part across the width at every tab intersection to be able to fold the profile shape of the car.  Glue the top and sides togther first, then fold under the running boards and glue in the bottom (folding the inside face of the wheels down then folding the ends in last).
The wheels don't have any 3D thickness, but considering they are in shadow, I don't think you notice it too much.
