Looks pretty cool. I might give it a shot but I'm not sure if I won't make shoddy work of it.

Best to find an old printer that loads from the top so the card stock doesn't have to get bent around a roller 180 degrees just to end up back where it started. I kept my old lexmark until it finally died just for this kind of thing even after I upgraded to a multifunction HP.

love the card-models.  I have a couple dozen from Fiddlers Green.  It is amazing to see the kind of stuff people are doing with card-stock.
Now, the problem is, how to divide five Afghans from three mules and have two Englishmen left over.

This reminds me a LOT of these wonderful playsets I used to get as a wee child; they were books with punch-out parts so you could build cars, buildings, trains, all kinds of things.
