I received my Zlin a few days ago and I'm sorry to report that the covering job on the wings and fuselage was so loose and wrinkled that I've decided to return it.

I used to build a lot of kits and consider my ability to apply Monokote and Ultracote to be above average.

I spent about an hour with a monokote iron covered with a Monokote Hot Sock and a heat gun and a soft cloth trying to get the many wrinkles out of the wing halves and fuse. These coverings will only shrink so much and the wrinkle were smaller but still there.

Applying heat to the multi layered sections was bringing up bubbles in the top layer of covering.

I have the GP Shoestring and I had the 70" Revolver. The wings on these GP ARFS are works of art!

I like the Zlin but I'm not taking a chance on a replacement, I'm exchanging for another Revolver.
