Silk vs Film

This is a lot to consume and it's turned out to be pretty informative. Doculam is a new one on me I'll do some research on it (the planes shown are very attractive). Coverite is still very active with both "fabric" and "film" iron on's. I bought some of the Cub yellow fabric for the Goldberg J-3 I am working on. I know it's a cliche but I've got two Goldberg kits and I'll make the second one an L-4. I've also got a SIG J-3 1/4er scaler. I like Cubs.

I am inclined to do the Liberty Sport in silk for the experience while it's not a kit that really looks too whimpy it's got a lot of wing and can probably support the weight. I've got an engine for it in the upper end of the range. It's a pretty plane which was part of the Sig catalog in the 80's when I built a Kadet MKII and a Senior. I'd made a mental note to buy one and then dropped out for 30 years. I was happy to find one.
