what type of card ( thickness ) should be used for card modeling.
Thats really a question pf preference/use/scale/ect. ect. I would recommend 65 lbs. card. Gil should be able to give you a bit more insight.
Deshpande, I use 120gsm and 180gsm paper/card. The 120gsm is quite bendable (good for curves), where the 180gsm is quite strong ( good for walls, ships decks and superstructure).
Normal printer paper, 80gsm, isn't bad for general use. I also have 240 gsm which is strong stuff, but won't fit in my printer.
Everything from cigarette filter papers to 200 gsm and 1mm depends what you are doing......1mm for frames cigarette papers for 40mm barrels
I never thought of using cig paper before, that's a good tip. But get them while you can, before smoking is banned.
