Good luck with your build MKS  Thumbs Up

Build continues.

Fitting servos, pushrods and wing bolts. The kit comes with no hardware nor wing mount system, so I improvised

Covering started. Used transparent yellow as I had it in stock, and couldn't get solid Cub yellow locally.

First painted the cowl and wheel hubs, and fitted the wing (aileron) servos

I fit servos (in these positions where screwing down is not possible) by using heavy duty double sided foam tape and a Zip (Cable) Tie. Reliable.

* Hint: If you use E-Max 8.5 gram servos, save the card packing. Makes a perfect template for marking out servo holes when you need to cut them. Same size as all standard 8.5'9 gram servos from HK etc.

yes cover with kite paper and damp it with some glue and water sol...... the paper will streach once dry
 but it will be delicate.

else use tape..... then iron it . that will iron out the wrinkles

Don't wake a Tiger until you've factored the teeth



Manoj:

1. Up to about 28~30 " span you can use tissue: Put the tissue on with glue, then spray water and let dry. The tissue shrinks tight. Now coat with Dope (NC Lacquer)

2. For 25 and above nitro models you can use nylon. Use an old sari, then Dope and paint (Oil Paint works fine)

3. Gusty sir has used Cellophane wrapping paper with success. Details are in my Red Swan build

4. Heat Shrink can be applied using an ordinary electric iron. A small travelling iron (about Rs. 400 on e-bay) works fine.

5. Be careful if using an electric hair dryer. It can pull the covering off the glued surface and ruin it

Practice, and only Practice will make you perfect



3. Gusty sir has used Cellophane wrapping paper with success. Details are in my Red Swan build

yes i have ! i prefer oracover though, for simple reason that, cellophane looses strength after a while. it is not at all water friendly, it is light however, after a few days you need to apply heat once again, else the skins sags again. other than that, for cheap and best repairs and micro aeroplane use, cellophane is as good as it can get
