Question
Covering options available for 1m Piper Cub

Can I get some input on covering materials? What's light but not too transparent for a kit this size? Don't want to use monokote and econokote sounds like the way to go.

Initially thought of using tissue. There polyspan and silk sounds like overkill. Both of which require painting. Doculam sounds like monokote, and don't know enough about Oracover, Coverite, etc.

Would appreciate your thoughts. One consideration is also availability in Singapore but wouldn't mind shipping in something right.

Polyspan is perfect for that size. I use it on Pat Tritle builds, and smaller, with nitrate dope. I'm going to try and double cover with it on a 1/5 scale Super Cub.
