How to Cover Wings with Fab­ric

Model Airplane News - - AIRWAVES -

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.
