Help!
Covering a Cub, I could use some help...

Anyone have experience covering with 21st Century Coverite? I'm stuck at the tail-fin fillet on a 1/4 scale sig cub that I'm refinishing. I've reached the limit of my patience and I should be outside...

I've read everything I could find around the web on the subject, but it's just not happening. Seems literally impossible to get the coverite to mold/bend into that shape. Unfortunately I'm stuck with the coverite, since I've finished everything else already.

I live near the sod farm if this is anyone's idea of a "fun challenge."

Thanks, but this cub has been built and flown for many years. it just desperately needed to be recovered and a lot of general TLC. It's been a frustrating learning curve, but I'm glad I tackled it. It took many tries but I was able to get the fillet covered. It's far from perfect but it'll work as my first covering job. I hope to have it at the field in a week or two.
