Busy doing the covering on the wings,and was going to glass and paint the tips...
During the covering job decided to give the tips the same plastic covering as the rest of the wings.
The tips are done in foam ,with the aileron spar done in hard balsa and that goes right out to the end of the wing.Also the leading edge does the same.
All these were shaped up and the foam covered in tissue and pva glue.
Having done this, wasnt sure the film would do the job around the foam and tissue.
Only one way to find out.....give it a go....IT works fine and if you need to remove the covering well that is now a real job as the two glues bond real tight.
Very happy with what has gone on so far.

sorry guys BUT THIS IS A BUILD SITE NOT AN ADVERTISING SITE
There is a site that I set up for advertising and would appreciate it if that could be used.
