.40 kit? 2 can cover it all, but to be on the safe side get 3. This also lets you add a cool trim scheme to it

Xpress,

He's not covering a .40 kit. I think this plane has a 6-7 foot wingspan...

If you don't mind doing a little painting, you could cover the whole thing with less than one roll of Doculam (500' per roll ). For this ship, you might need the 3 mil thickness.
