SUMMARY- I had to buy this kit used, and whoever had it first dug the model out of its display window in the box and used up about half the papers. I'm glad they had fun, but annoyed they vandalized the box and the seller failed to mention it. I love the Thunder Bay kits and pick them up whenever I get the chance. The papers in this kit are preprinted on both sides, so it would be really difficult to reproduce them on your home printer. However, most of them have sort of a general pattern and not specific placements(except the turtle) of design, so you could fudge a bit by simply extending the borders a bit so there's fudge room. He apparently didn't have enough animal models designed and included an arachnid and a bug to round out his numbers. The paper has an unusual feel to it - sort of a rough texture - that should be interesting to play with.
