Hi,

A few years ago, here in the US, wax paper manufacturing processes changed. There is no longer any wax evident on the paper. It may work well for it's intended purpose but not for building over as glue sticks to it readily.

my question is this: Is the good stuff available in the UK?

Thanks in advance,

James Fuller

I don’t know but I use the paper sold for lining baking trays which works quite well.

I use the backing from covering film. that works for me.

WE used to rub the plan with candle grease, that was pretty good too. Doesn't mark the plan, just leaves a waxy deposit.

I use baking paper from the supermarket which says "....has been treated with silicones to make it non stick......" As it is suitable for food use I also know therefore that I could eat my model if I really had to....teeth 2

The paper isn't transparent though being an opaque light brown.....

As per Mr Miller I keep a candle in my drawer for rubbing on plans at the glue joints....the old ways often are the best....wink 2

I've been using cling film with not a great deal of success, it protects the plan well enough but I spend ages unpicking it from the wood. Should I use grease proof and candle rubbing instead?

Only if you are tired of picking clingfilm off the modelsmiley

I've found sellotape over the joint areas works quite well and helps to stop old plans falling apart into the bargain.

Hi James, I use transparent shelf lining paper. It sticks to the plan, and gives complete protection, and added strength
