Actually heat shrink can work. If you live in the northern regions, you can get heat-shrink material that is used to add another insulating layer to leaky windows and patio doors. I spray the model with 3M super 77, place the film as smooth as you can put some masking tape along the perimeter of the piece ( so that it does not get pulled back while heating) then heat with a hot air gun or hair blower. the stuff is about1-2 mils thick so it does not add much weight. the plane below has increased weight by 1.2 oz on a AUW of 20oz.
