    Can they be used as a "3D" source for creating paper models? The SIMS guys do a lot of design and trading of their Flight models, which might be a cool resource for us paper geeks... if we can just figure out how to use their work.

    Just an idea...

    YES... But be warned that it will take A LOT of re-work to convert to a card-model as they are made to look good on screen, not to unfold as papercraft.. ie: no inner structures, intersecting surfaces, surfaces that do not fir or line up, and texture that will have to be reworked, also you will need to convert them from there native format to a .obj file to bring into your 3d software of choice
