Asian Shophouse

Postby General Castries » Sun Apr 10, 2016 1:21 am

Folks,
I came across this, which might be of interest. It's a paper model of an Asian shophouse (the family busness would be on the ground floor, and the family would live on the second floor). It's almost perfectly scaled for 1/72 figures (I've put one of the Elheim AirCav figures in for scale).

I still have some detailing to do on the kit, and I've got 7 more to build. More pictures can be found at http://www.paperbricksdesign.com/#

Magnificent!

Is there access to each floor for figures?

Folks,
Thanks for your comments.

Tom,
It's possible to place figures in the downstairs "shop" area. But unless you made serious modifications to the roof, it wouldn't be possible to place fiures in the upper story.

That looks like a great find! If its a paper model is it one that you could buy and then scan and scale up (or down) to any other scale as well? :really

Those are beautiful and perfect! Would work for just about anywhere in S.E. Asia, not just Vietnam or Singapore.

Would it be possible to scan and rescale?

Short answer - it probably would.

The model comes in a book form, with the pages having perferated edges (so you can pull out an entire page). The paper is high-quality stiff paper, which means it's very sturdy. But in principle, I don't think there's anything that would prevent someone scanning and resizing the model. But you would need to do this on similar high-quality stiff paper.

Hope this helps.

But ask for permission if you want to rescale. It is (I would guess) copyrighted. As someone who has to hunt down illegal file shares I can be a bit prickly about that kind of thing...

Hey Extra Crispy,

You raise an interesting point here mate. So from a legal perspective do you know if its OK to rescale this kind of stuff if its for personal use only? :umm
