    Depending on size, at a minimum 2 mm, with a gluing strip of card along the edge for gluing the hull to (usually red, same color of hull). The ship plans usually give you the thickness needed.

    I have looked at some builds that use an extra frame that is glued onto the actual frame but the thickness of the paper used from the frame edge. Then a inner hull is glued to this and then the outer hull has more support and appears smoother. I have not tried this yet but will soon.
