I would check out papermodelers.com forum or zealot.com forum for a start. Someone from there would be able to point you in the right direction.
And I know I've seen some of the models used in RC models. Also a couple RC boats, though that would scare the bejeebers out of me. Can you imagine missing some waterproofing and your PAPER boat taking on water???
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!
oddly I am likewise into Rc planes although i ahven't flown in 2 years now...
I know in the past cardboard planes although not common were made, this tended to be using corrugated cardboard and following more traditional construction methods (sorry my old example link is dead).
Myself I've made stuff out of corrugated plastic (SPADS)which is virtually indestructible, This was using a nitro engine and I broke the motor before I broke the plane.
As to paper itself quiet a few people have made planes using fiddlers green models as a base although they tend to support the framework using foam and then have the paper as a very thin decorative skin. I think this is because paper/card is weaker and heavier than foam. i know when i did some weight comparisons the depron was significantly lighter per square foot than paper:

bravesirkevin: Monty Python is mostly just absurdist humor coupled with a snide mockery of convention. They're also just trying to cheekily see what sort of things they could get away with, in much the same way that South Park does.

marcpasquin: I don't get seinfeld either to be fair so its not a british humour thing. I *can* quote Red Dwarf episodes.

marcpasquin: I just don't get monthy python. My wife made me watch Monthy Python and the Holy Grail and, yes, there are a few funny bits. But on the whole, I don't get why a bunch of vikings rappelling into a restaurant while chanting "spam-spam-spam" is funny.
