Mr. Bean, Great paper models, one question though, why do you print them on paper then glue to card rather than printing direct onto card or is this where I have been going wrong?

My laser printer doesn't accept cardboard. I think this is the same story for most laser printers because the paper has to be heated for the toner to stick to it. I guess you would need stronger heating elements for cardboard.

It is more work to glue the paper to the cardboard but I'm pretty happy with the result. It gives a thicker overall material (100gsm paper + 200gsm cardboard) and the moisture in the glue seems to be good when folding it, as when folding along strongly coloured sections of the paper, the toner does not 'crackle' like it sometimes does if doing it while dry
Is it the truth, or did you hear it from the truth engineer?

Photo paper works a treat for making models like this.
It's not too thick for a printer, but it's still quite sturdy compared to paper. Plus you can have glossy models if you do so desire! lol
I build all my models using 'Ditto' photo paper from Big W.

Do you use an inkjet or laser printer? I wouldn't have thought glossy paper would work in a laser printer

Inkjet.

Although I generally don't use the glossy side of photo paper anyway, it somehow detracts from the realism of the model when it's excessively shiny.
Still, give it a go and see what you think ;)

relating to the inkjet printing topic bristol and sta 1440 i have to say that i dont like the photo paper to print buses, thats where i have gone wrong.
you see, this paper is extremely hard to fold, but prints perfectly, but mr beans idea of the paper to cardboard works a treat, except my laser printer may not print its best sometimes... >=( all in all GREAT buses mr bean, especially the new livery ones. ill try and get you some b7rle photos so you could do some on them!
hope to see more!

One question Mr Bean. How do you put the photo of each side of the bus onto the paper and turn it into a 3D fold-up bus? :? :?:

Thats a good, detailed selection of buses you have there. That challenges even Mungojerrie's models (where I get most of mine from)
