What glossy paper type is the best for models?

I'm designing a paper model of an airplane that is very glossy. It will be offset printed, and I'd like to print it on a glossy coated paper, 180-200gr/m.

But... The top layer of the glossy coated paper I used in the past is cracking on the crease/fold, and a lot of white powder comes out.

Question: are there models printed on glossy paper when it fits the object? Or is a non-coated paper the best choice whatsoever?
What brand/type of glossy paper would be the best choice?

I like glossy paper. I have good luck with brochure paper. It is more plastic than paper and very uunforgiving. But it is made for laser printing, I assume there is an equivalent for offset printing.

I have had good luck with brochure paper also, though I use it on an inkjet printer. Seeing as the name is brochure, it was probably originally intended for use with an offset printer.
