How to Cover Wings with Fabric
Regardless of size, airplanes need to be covered, and if you are getting into giantscale airplanes, you might want to consider fabric covering like that used to cover fullsize aircraft. Scale Stits is a lightweight, heat-shrinkable polyester fabric, and it is used by many talented scale modelers for the ultimate in painted finishes. We posted this how-to article, and several of you had good things to say.
Matt Johnson: I have always used iron-on fabric covering. I will have to give this stuff a try.
Jim Main: Your videos are great; I learned a lot.
Don Thomas: I have used the same material, but I got it from Balsa USA. I love it—I have a five-year-old model and still not a single wrinkle or loose patch.
Gary T.: I always thought that glue-on fabric was too difficult to work with. I see I was mistaken. Nice job.
