Back to the build.

Trim the tissue about 1/8" all around and glue it down, make sure to get an overlap at the wing root. Also a licked finger will help smooth down the overlaps just make sure your gluestick is non toxic if you can even buy a toxic glue stick.

The fuselage is done the same way, tack it, do one end and then the other.
Take care lining up the second side so the top and bottom stripes line up side to side. Also no overlap on the fuselage trim the tissue right to the edge.
Small parts like the stab and rudder can be done in one shot.

The top of the wingtips will need to be done separately so cover out to the last rib and cut the wingtip tissue off, be careful not to cut through the bottom tissue.
Glue all the overlaps on the wing then hold the wingtip covering in place and rub the side of a pencil along the rib. Take it off and trim to the pencil line, it will have a slight curve.
Now glue the tip covering to the rib only, let it dry a few minutes the glue it down around the edge and trim the overlap.
Nice neat trimming really shows here so take your time.

You can release the glue with a brush dipped in rubbing alcohol.

I like to let the glue stick dry overnight then a light mist of water will shrink the tissue up nice and tight.

The scissors in the photo work very well when covering with tissue.

This brace did not make it onto the plan but I have another airplane that the tissue pulled the tip up when it was clear coated so I suggest adding it to your models, I used a piece of 3/32 sq.

Mine is all covered and I will post some more today.

how effective is the rudder at making turns without ailerons? on my quater scale i needed to cordinate rudder with ailerons in turns. have you tried wing warping on this plane?
