Hingeing for Luscombe Elevator/Rudder and Windows!

I've heard all about using the thin stuff for covering - but to find some....in Wales...?

Tried ironing it on as hinges (used Solartex before - see my threads e.g. Cessna) on some scrap 3/32. Sandwich trapped with top 3/32 strips using thick cyano.

Tried to pull it apart, bend it back and forth to crack it - no chance

Thinking of tissue covering, I even doped it a couple of coats! No adverse effect Nice transparent gap!

OK then - cabin windows/rooflights etc.

Great! I even gell-penned a couple of lines on the non-adhesive side. I DOPED over these to prevent smear...didn't look bad at all. With a bit of care this has possibilities

Give it a whirl!
