Cliff, have you ever considered making quick-build, basic versions of your models? Just basic shapes so that a user could have a simple, recognizable model they can throw on the table if they don't have time to build full models. Say I need another 4 Shermans but I don't have the time (or knowing me, I'm too lazy) to build four full models. I'm thinking something where the hull and tracks are one 6 or 7 sided box, the turret is basically a short cylinder (for a Sherman), and then you slap a gun tube on it. Do you think your user base would be interested in something like that?
Personally I think the tanks are reasonably easy to build. The only thing I'd like to see is a solid track construction like "Best Paper Models" do (or did). The track sections are very time consuming and can be pretty fiddly. Solid tracks can be assembled in less than half an hour.

I have thought about it. Not sure what way to go about it at this time, and it would be a lot of work. Many models do not have room on the single page for simple track options and would need another sheet/additional page.
