    US dollars.Went over to the 405th your using 20 lbs paper i think You will be better off using card stock on the rifle.I would also stuff the helmet with something before wetting it with anything 20 lbs paper is a little flimsy.You can problly get the lab visor at any hardware store.

    printer

    actualy, i have no idea what type of paper im using. this is just the basic stuff i got out of my printer. but ok. but please tell me that cardstock isnt card! i really hate my self for using that stuff. it is just about impossible to use. wont glue down properly. but i got the mag up on the 405th.

    Ok 20 lb paper is the stuff you write a letter on .65 and 110 lb are for report covers and greeting cards.Poster board is the plywood of paper models.hardest to work with and most durable on its own.65 to 110 lb is the best for what you are trying to do.For glue I use BEACON,S 3-in-1 Advanced Craft Glue.It,s like instant glue with out the staining or glue your fingers together.20 lb paper is good for small stuff and details.

    I use 80 lb for some things, but I'm kind of stuck on 110lb for larger models and for stiffness on smaller models.
