    John John,

    You need to know a good paper dealer. They'll have chipboard through illustrator board. Best to take a vernier caliper with you to measure thickness. The following sites will give you some background in the nuances and lingua Franca of the paper trade. Plies to thickness is still a quandry..., that's the reason for the caliper. Best to wait for the kit to arrive before making any decisions. You'll have to study it (actually read the instructions) and then make up a purchase list before proceeding to your knew found paper dealer.

    I figured I would but Im more worried about finding a good paper supplier in Ireland...more finding any paper supplier in Ireland. I got a quote for 200 A3 cardstock from a supplier and that came to 50 Euro...thats rough
    I cant get anything decent over here...

    :evil: :evil: Why did I leave NYC?? :evil: :evil: :evil:

    Hi John John,

    Udo is also working on a copy of the kit (to afraid to ruin the original).

    He is using 220g / qm cardstock. This is what his printer measured from the original.

    regards,
    Michael

    Yeah I spent today looking for good stuff but...Man the Irish Mentality is a killer. If your not looking for A4 or A3 white Paper your considered a weirdo. :shock: :shock: :evil: :evil:


    I may end up buying Artists Pads of a decent weight and cutting em down.

    I was looking at coloured contsrutction paper...maybe different colours for the decks and walls....

    You may like to know that several years ago I have published a set of lasercut railings for the SD-14 - see my website, www.zeistbouwplaten.nl, page Merchant shipping.
