paper models help

While browsing I hit upon

formatting link
I checked the FAQ

But nothing about the paper weight or glue or what tools to bend paper or if you use glossey(?) paper or spray a coating after, if anybody could point me in the right direction please

I use 110 lb. white card stock to print these. The sheets run through my color printer fine- it is one of those with an angled 'stack' in the rear and feeds through fairly directly.

I have an old HP laserjet works well with up to 90# (the specks say 80# max) Funny we baoth do the same thing.. I also have an old Citizen 24 pin with all the color you'd want.. I spray a couple light coats of lacquer ( no I haven't tried the water based stuff ) make it about 10 times stronger and "weather" resistant!

Happy Flying!
