Use 110 lb. stock from Staples, or equivalent weight paper, which in the U.K. would be , no less than 67 lb. stock. 110 lb is the best for these surfaces. I should have stated that first, and I apologize for that.
Check out this link:
For 110 lb. stock you would use: 110lb = 298gsm
I know what is wrong witht he model, the ink from the printer is making the paper bend and change shape, and this will happen when the paper that the model is been built out of is to thin and the paper the will change it's shape.
Going to thicker paper will help but maybe setting to printer to use less ink and also putting the paper in a press to force it back into a flat shape should also help.
Looking at the model it looks like one for the bucket list for me, I am now busy thinking of what to build next after my massive project is complete and I think this may be it.
Feet added and starting on the plating.
I'm impressed! It would take the patience and surgical skill to manipulate plain paper into such a detailed work. Good luck!
That is coming together rather nicely!!!
You are doing a GREAT JOB!!!
Considering the size and the details, you did a very quick build of this model. You need to try the Viper next. Thanks for sharing and hope to see more of your works.
You did a GREAT job on this model!!!
Great job! Any chances we get some pics with the wings in attack (X) position? That would be the best...
Great job! You really banged it out fast too. I look forward to seeing your future works.
Good work! With the resources you had access to the UHU02 design still makes for a stellar paper model!!! Keep on paper modelling!
Super job! I know the plain paper route [have taken it before], and here's an idea that might add some reinforcement. a little super glue strategically placed might help straighten and strengthen your model. DOWN SIDE is it will change texture and color wherever it touches. Just a thought, anyway. Your model looks great as it is!
