Get a glove. I didn't have one and I think that would have made a big difference on the tip. Also, my heat gun was too hot and I didn't have one of those heat directors (the funnel like tip).

I had to use see through red MonoKote and it didn't seem to have the same stretch characteristics as the blue Monokote he used in the video. It seemed that the material had to be pretty taunt even before you shrink it. I had one rib right up against my Styrofoam fuselage so I only had about a 1/8 inch to grab on that side. All told, it was no picnic.
