    I often use 160-180 g/m2 paper , some times even 250 g/m2 , the 120 g/m2 paper I use it for small scales ( 1:120, 1:200 )

    I would use 100-120 gram paper for the majority of the build, use 250 gram for formers and whatnot. If you want to use the same weight for the entire build I would go with 160ish :) Then you can laminate stock together to make the formers :)

    However that translates.
