Does anyone have any links to good websites to get papercraft ships and terrain usable with Star Wars miniatures?

Sorry if this has been discussed before but I'm pretty new here.

That sounds fun!

What kinds of things were you looking to do with them?

If it's just ships you're after, I've found great luck with the Wizkids Star Wars Pocketmodels. You can get them for pennies on the dollar now, or buy whole lots for $20-30 (dozens of starships).

It's the only way I can feasibly do a 40-on-40 A-Wing vs TIE Fighter battle.

I'm not big into paper minis. But I did create hundreds and hundreds of pogs using Label paper and washers.

I'd be happy to show you how, if you're interested.

I am mostly looking for ships or scenes to use with the d6 rpg and 25mm miniatures. The ships would be mostly setting material in hangers or battlefields.

Currently I am using Micro Machine Action Fleet ships, but none of the larger ships are anywhere near the correct scale.

I was inspired when I found this papercraft ship that is 3' long for Serenity from Firefly

I am also not much of a paper minis type person. I have dozens of them from various rpgs over the years, they sit and never see the light of day.

But the papercraft things I have seen in recent times are amazing when put together correctly.

I've always wanted to do something kinda like where the Mini sits on a stand, kinda like the paizo cardboard monster things.

I had an idea where you have a metal mini, print out pictures and put them on both sides, and then hold the paper down with metal, that way you just have to print out a 2x1 picture of whatever it is you're fighting and stick it on the framework.

Didn't get too far with the idea because I'm not running any offline home games, but it always seemed like a solid idea to me.
