Jannis what about printing out onto normal paper then glue this to thicker card using PVA with books on top to keep eveything flat - sorry my old messing about coming to life here!

Well I just finished making it and it looks great. I used paper that was like photographic paper in its thickness you dont want it much thicker then that really.

Heres a picture of the finished Paper Globe of the Moon.

Oh one thing to remember when you make it is to crease lightly along the lines of latitude etc this will help when you put it together so dont skip it. Also when you print it out follow the instructions and put the 4 sections together as they are show or you will have trouble gluing it when its nearly done. Also with a pencil just write the number of the section on the back so you dont forget what section are what like I did. When your done and you go out to photograph the moon again this will be great reference for you to refer to. I love the moon
