I used a heat gun and a cotton sock! Wave the gun and follow your waves with a rub of the sock to smooth it down! You will need to seal down ALL seams with an iron of some sort tho! I pull my fingers against the seams on the edges to "feel" if they need the iron and I found that ALL the edge seams needed attention!

Thanks to both you and Paul for your comments on fixing the wrinkly skin. By the looks of it, I would say they had a first year apprentice do the covering jobs Dan. The last time I worked MonoKote was about 28 years ago, so my memory is a little fuzzy.

Paul, yes I would agree that this thread is invaluable. If I hadn't come across this thread and read it from the beginning I wouldn't be sitting here with one in my shop . Anyway, as I stated before, this kit will go into hibernation for a while, but I will be looking forward to reading how both of your planes progress. Good luck on your builds!
