Mambo 150 build need covering advice
Im building a Mambo 150 from Aero Craft. Its a 30" wing span, 7 ounce model. I am looking to do a dope type finish, but I am unsure what to put on it.
I would like to use a poly type covering that would accept dope, then trim it with doped colored tissue.
What do you recommend and where can I buy it?

On a small light model,especially as you are obviously happy with using dope and tissue, you couldn't do better than Esaki Liteflite jap tissue over 10 micron mylar. All materials available from www.freeflightsupplies.co.uk as well as other sources. For the technique, either google "tissue over mylar" or search this forum for the same thing, there are numerous threads on it. Here are a few of my models which are covered like this. Very light, quite puncture proof and very torsionally stiff.
