Covering with Koveral from SIG

Hi there,

I am busy building a 1/5th Scale SE5a and is currently at the covering phase.

I want to use KOVERALL. I have used it last year on a SIG Smith Miniplane I build for a friend.

For adhesive and sealer I used stuff I got from a local hobby dealer and he called it,

AeroLoc - Same as Sig Stix-it
Aerofix - Apparently it is Nitrate Dope
AeroSeal - Nitrate dope with some filler added.The problem is that I can not get the stuff any more from Him and I do not have much experience with dope.

Here in South Africa this kind of stuff is difficult to get hold of.

I spoke to someone and he told me that I can use Sanding Sealer for adhesive. According to him it is more or less the same as Nitrate Dope.

My question here is, Is this true? Will it work? Does someone have any advice for me on this?

He also said I can add some Talcum powder to the Sanding sealer and use it as sealer to seal the weave. Is this true? Any advice Please?

I also read on the internet that I can use normal PVA base white wood glue instead of Stix-it. Is this true? Will this work?

I will really appreciate any help and advice on this Please.
