Solite aka Nelson Lite film is about the easiest thing to use I reckon.

Profilm is a bit more expensive but after asking at my flying club
Everyone said Profilm. Apparently its easy to apply and remove if you make a mistake!

Hope this helps.

For the records, http://www.sussex-model-centre.co.uk...lours-5210.htm says that Profilm = Oracover = Ultracote and http://www.hobby-lobby.com/oracover.htm says that Oracover is now Polycover.

So if these sources are correct, these four names refer to the same covering material.
