Hi, Everyone !
This is is reply to someone who asked about the " Acidity " in the paper . I do understand this is a logical concern .Now to allay your fears . I have some paper ships built , that are over forty years old .
I did not , back then , spray them with craft clear as I do now .Ttheir condition ? Shall we say even with the age they have on them - excellent .
Now when I do paper I am always hunting for ways to make them even better such as the use of P.E. for rails,ladders and mast details etc.
I do use heavier paper - I/e - Business card stock if I am going to print my own .The ones still in their original packages , some stored in a non-environmentally controlled building are as fresh and white as they were when I got them .Every Page !
I don't really know the paper types , but, it seems that the leaders such as Wilhemshaven , Schreiber and Model Polsky , Use high quality paper . Some seems to have a higher finish on it ( semi - gloss finish on the printed side ) and most do not . The only place I've seen a difference is in Wilhemshaven models . Due to the flat finish to their paper , you have less adjustment time to put a part or panel in place That's about I can add right now . Model On! T.B.
