Actually Leeway is quite right, all the top designer/builders pre-fab in paper to check the look.

I once visited the Riva factory in Italy, and they had a full size 58 footer built in rice paper. looked great, but like Lee's, some fool sat on it! got all crumpled.
I believe they folded up another, but during testing it went a bit 'limp'.
