There are a lot of differences between the laminates.

Our laminate doesn't shrink as much and I think that is why it doesn't get so brittle. It is easier to apply because you don't get so many wrinkles. I'm sure the spray on adhesive also plays a roll.

If you look at my planes that have an Ultracoat covering after 2 years, more of them have loose laminate than we see on the clear laminate we include in the kit. the laminate adhesive is better than the 3m77 spray adhesive.

The clear laminate doesn't show wrinkles as much but you need to add color to stay oriented to the plane and see the plane against the clouds.

My son Mike paints his planes and the clear laminate sticks to the paint .
