Plus Model has released a handy sheet of printed maps that could have multiple uses, in a figures hand, in a vehicle, or in a diorama. The maps are printed on a matt paper with some good looking colors and details. The colors resemble maps I have seen and used in the military in the past.
The maps do look to scale, with some maps measuring 25mm by 15mm with one of the bigger maps coming in a 35mm by 27mm. The maps are assorted sizes, and all look to be different locations. Due to the scale, the location of the map is not ledgible, even if they are exact locations. Also, they could be used for any era.
My only issue with the maps, is the thickness of the paper they are printed on, which is way over scale, especially when folded. A trick I have used in the past, is to run the back of the paper over a fine sand paper to thin it to a desired thickness. This should be done slowly and carefully, but will produce a good looking thickness for folding and/or rolling.
These Military Maps from Plus Model look great, and should be very useful for adding a little extra detail to a figure, vehicle, and/or diorama. While printed on paper a little thick for the scale, they are very well printed and do represent good looking maps. Highly recommended.
