I'm an Ultracote bigot. Very easy to use, can be painted ( no dope please ) and doesn't keep wrinkling like Monokote does. Just follow instructions that come with it and you're first job will look good!

However! It does take a little while to "settle". I put a new plane out in the sun, hotter the better, for an hour or so and see what needs to be re-shrunk. Do this a couple of times and its pretty stable.

I'd do this before doing the painting. I don't know what to do if you got a wrinkle in a painted area.

But, I have only used the heavier opaque stuff, very strong, but it is not light.
