Paul, I have a white LET Reiher, I used the regular white for the servo hatches, pretty sure it is the same stuff, I used the same on the ASK-13 I built. Natural is the beige.

Dennis! They have 3 colors. Beige,Natural White,(looks like a cream color off White) and White(which is White like on the Modern Scale ships).Of course Beige is Antique. Did you repaint the Reiher or is yours "stock white" from the factory?
It wouldn't be so bad about the color,but i have to wait so long for the material and it is expensive. No one has it in America. Thank You for the input Dennis. Paul

Yes, I think Solartex is identical, and my Reiher is white from the factory, you want the pure white, Balsa USA sells it, as well as Nelson, Jerry Nelson hinself told me his was the same, just relabeled, and you can get it long rolls.
