    I just picked up a Maly Modelarz ship which I have scanned in.

    Can anyone help with some advice about paper size/weight?

    I'm guessing the formers should be 2.5 mm, the decks 1 mm and the rest a mixture of standard 80g and heavy 160g paper.

    The model in question will build to about 35in total length. I'm thinking of printing at 50% size. What paper size/weight should I use now?

    Cheers JTF
  2. My advice would be to use the same weight at the original model you have. I use a heavier weight for the formers. I print them on paper then laminate it to two layers of cerial box cardboard. I cut it when it is still soft from the glue as it is easier on the hands. You can also luse sheet metal snips to cut them as well.

    Thanks for the advice.

    I'll try a few combinations of paper and card. You can't beat trial and error.

    Cheers JTF
