    Was doing some reference search and came across this video from the Star Wars Archaeology Panel of 2016.
    The pertinent part in the video, about card models starts at 22:57!

    Cybergrinder and Rhaven Blaack like this.

    It makes sense to use cardstock for building models like this. It is cheap and easy to work with. Decades ago, I read an article about how the U.S.S. RELIENT (Star Trek, The Wrath of Khan) was made from cardstock. It inspired me even more to continue to make paper models.
