It's not the end of the world if you build and cover to the point of doping and then finish things off when you return home. Just be sure that you've got a hard case box that fits in your check in luggage to hold the airframe bits when built and covered.
I'll be gone for extended periods of time, probably at least three months at a time. I think I will have a look at the LW Tissue and also CoverLite. Both seem to be options. But from what I understand the LW Tissue may be the same as "Airspan" and is even light enough to use on peanut models. The description at the BP website says that it is heat shirinkable and moisture resistant. Sounds perfect. But we'll see. If push comes to shove I'll just have a friend ship me out the traditional doping supplies.
I will post some build pics. I'll probably start with something simple like a Peck Bostonian Pub or Prairie Bird.
Again, thanks for all the help!
