New links

K's ペパカーガレージ
Can't remember where I saw this link, but for fans of street racing anime like Initial D and Wangan Midnight, this guy has small but nice models of the hero's cars. Turn on your browser's translate function to see the English text. One of the links takes you to a new website with models categorized by manufacturer.

This was an old link I lost when the original webpages went offline and WayBack didn't save the graphics. As the name indicates, these were "Things to make for children" and have simple scenery bases, buildings, ships and vehicles for an airport, modern town, train station, farm, army base, pirate lair and western town. Simple but lots of potential for recolors, which the site owner encourages - this is the first time I've seen a parachute store building and a V1 launch site.

K's Paper Cars has an updated website with new models:
https://kspepa.web.fc2.com/model.html

Still has the original cars but now organized by maufacturer, the Initial D/Wangan Midnight/MF Ghost anime cars are found in the link below Saab.

More interesting is the Toyota link, which has the Toyota Century VG40 limousine - considering all the Japanese paper cars out there, a relative rarity!

I'll keep using this topic to report website updates, like this for
http://papirmakett.freeweb.hu/

Under the Kamionok + Potkocsk (trucks and trailers) tab there's been a major revamp, where the original list of trucks included DAF, Mercedes Benz, Renault and Volvo. Only IFA, Kamaz, Maz and Raba remain in the new list, but there are fewer designers who make former Communist-bloc brands anyway.

There are new trucks including cement mixers, tow trucks and fire trucks, but more importantly the quality of the graphics have definitely improved. Definitely worth a visit, even for modelers who aren't familiar with these truck brands.

While looking for inspiration to kitbash an M8 Greyhound in Philippine Army markings I went looking for similar looking APCs and found the Minimodels.cz OT-64 Skot.

That reminded me of the BTR-80 from the Ace Combat games I'd seen posted before on their gamer forums and mentioned by Ninjatoes, but the wayback machine links were dead ends. Today I finally found the original Photobucket host which has everything I remember and more here:

https://s303.photobucket.com/user/Ji...20Works?page=1

They're fairly simple and lack tabs, but there's a lot of variety for the 1970-1990 period - 3 variants each of the HMMWV and M113, tracked and wheeled AAMs, MBTs and trucks. The real finds for me were the Gepard, ZSU-23-4, SA-6 Gainful SSM and of course the BTR-80. And they're in PNG format, easy to recolor and rescale.

The BTR-80 nose isn't as useful as I thought, but the others have real potential!
