Covering

What's the difference between Ultracote, Ultacote lite, and Ultracote Parklite?

I bought a Millenium Slow Stick X kit and I want to cover it in a transparent film and LED's inside the wing.

Available colors, Weight and strength.
Ultracote lite should work for your ship.

I have covered in transparent orange. Looks nice for my first covering so far (vert / hor stab, and el )
I want to cover the rud in a red, white,and blue strip pattern like WWI planes. Should I cover in a solid white and then add the red, blue strips?

Sounds like a fair plan.
Got snappies (pics)?

That looks great!

I'm going to order that same Slow Stick X kit from milllenium.

Any tips on covering it ? How did you do the rudder after all ? One covering in white and seperate strips for the blue & red ?

Cheers,

BF

Thanks. Yes I covered solid white, then messured rudder (105mm), so 35mm blue and red strips on opposing ends.

I'm on another project now. I'm converting a giant big stik to EP. I have striped down the factory red and white Monokote and I'm ready to recover in selected colors. I'm looking for suggestions or technics for a clean finish over the scalloped TE of ailerons, rudder, and elevator. I was thinking just heat gun and pull tight wouldn't conform to scalloped edges.
