Kn', that wing section I suggested in the sketch some time ago was intended to be done in card stock similar to that used for greeting cards and business cards. Not printer paper.

Although many years ago I did do a paper glider with a 22 inch wingspan using a similar paper airfoil and rolled paper tube for the fuselage. It actually glided quite well. But of course it would not resist an actual throw or even towing it up on a thread towline. It hung in my "shop", which was a closet under the stairs in my parent's house, for a couple of years and then I crumpled it up and tossed it when in a fit of cleaning up.
