Welcome.  Definitely do some of Dave's Koolwheelz.  Go together well and look great on the back end.

Yes, welcome

Try cardstock for most models.
I use standard cardstocks (65lb and sometimes 110lb) for everything.
I would suggest only use paper for very small scale or very small constructions.
Rolling thin tubes is easier with lightweight papers.
