Do you recommend a certain weight or type of paper for the automatas?
Hi Jenny,not so easy, to answer. There a many preferences among paper model builders. And there are many different descriptions for the same kind of paper. I use 160g/m² paper for the most of my builds.
Maybe the following links to posts here on this forum are helpful:

I purchase 65 pound paper and have gotten started. I built my first yesterday with the jumping cow. It took about 7 hours and didn't work. I broke the bottom support of the Scotch yoke. That's ok. I'm not discouraged. Now I'm trying the pendulum gnashers.
