I may have to try this. But I still don't know what this stuff is actually
made of. When it gets wet, it wants to roll up on itself into a very small
tube. I did find what seemed o be the JoB site but these clear papers aren't
And since Buzz and Michael Wuyek asked, I did try gluing a bit to some sprue
with elmers white. After it dried I was easily able to pull it apart, but it
was the bond with the plastic that failed. The white glue pulled off with
the paper and I wasn't able to pull the glue off the paper, which I'm pretty
sure I would be able to do if it was plastic celophane.
On the paint experiment, Tamiya acrylic flaked off easily, the enamels stuck
And I made a mistake on the dimensions of these paper. They are 3"x1-1/4",
Overall impression hasn't changed. It's not what I hoped for but it should
still come in handy some day.
