    No, sorry and BTW this one isn't from me as I don't have that playset.
    And there's only a few more on the web.
    This website has (customs?) scan of the parts but sadly too small to print:

    That one has larger ones and some pics :

    If someone has that playset I'd love to see some pics with action figures

    I have wanted that Palitoy Death Star for many years as an adult. As a child I'm glad I had the plastic one.
    I doubt cardstock would have lasted long especially when I liked to play with the death Star in the Bathtub as an "Submarine"

    I had a Buck Rogers tv show set that was mostly cardboard. I think the Stunt Man set from the 70's was cool and the Fighting furies were awesome.
    Sadly I have nevr found a Lone Ranger western town . . .or was that Butch and Sundance?
    Kenner should have made a Raider of the Lost Ark cardboard set back in the day.

    That one's made out of wood; although they DID print instructions for cardboard/foam versions of Hoth and Dagobah. Woman's Day SUpercity is cardboard.

    Some wood, some foam core. The wood areas are for the structure to house the working mechanisms like the conveyor belt. I have found the cardboard backing on old bookcases to be just as sturdy and because this is a DIY, you choose the materials you use. Note the use of other materials like the reflective adhesive back material. Also note the Micronauts figures.

    Print it out on a color printer and cardstock in Landscape. It should almost fill the page. Trim it and fold along the bottom of the squares. You get a floor and wall scaled for 1/18 scale figures.
