Paper Craft Buildings

 

Reproduction box art buildings you can make and print at home!

The Buildings and structures in here cover most of the AFX/Aurora papercraft from 1974 to 1982 Tyco Command control and custom creations.

* Fun FACT: Aurora started making Papercraft buildings in 1974 this was a new gimmick used to sell racing sets *

You can help add to this section; If you scan your original papercraft I can fix them up and post them.

I have modifed the original artwork so they can be printed onto 8.5X11 card stock and run out on a home printer. I had to recreate many of the orginal paper parts as they were eaten away with damage.

you can use 110 pound paper from staples or office depot. they even have colored 110 pound paper for extra effects.

Paper Craft Tips

  • Use the back edge of a blade to pre-score all the folds this will give you a crisp edge on corners and 45 angles.
  • when cutting the slots for tabs round the edges as shown on the originals do not make 45 degree cuts.
  • when scoring a corner with a slot for a tab do not score over the slot lip, score before and after it. the cut you made for the slot will break on the score lines when you bend the paper to form the corner.
  • Hot glue is great for a fast strong bond or to strengthen an area that may fold weakly.
  • Take your time prefit all the parts
  • to help a tab lock into a slot you may need to bend the slot lip slightly use a Xacto blade to lightly bend the paper up or down to allow the tab to slide in easily and lock in place.

HAVE FUN!

All photos taken of reproductions buildings are made from files available for download on this website.
