Back in the day, most UK wings were skinned with a glue like a contact adhesive that could be found in most hardware stores, was pretty cheap and worked great.

Which likely meant that leaving the pot open too long could poison the entire state of California...

Looking forward to seeing Ulu. Sounds about the size of model I built back when I flew slimey things. Sometimes think that even the 4S 3600/OS30 combo is a tad too big for comfort for me.

I vaguely recall the idea of marking hot wiring templates with matched divisions so that the wire could be moved through the core at different speed s to cope with the taper. I think I'll stick with all wood structures and maybe revert to parallel chord wings

Never mind those toy airplane things. I now have to paint a door in the condo...
