Stryker - to glass or not to glass
I am assembling a Stryker from scratch. I know foam and EPP don't hold paint very well. So I am trying to decide whether to just use polycrylic as a base for painting or to glass the entire body before painting. Although I will be installing a brushless motor, my consideration for glassing is mainly to provide a better looking finish not to strengthen the airfame.
I have seen bits and peices of peoples thoughts on this - mostly in the "How far can you take it?" threads but it is very scattered. I was hoping that I could call on all you Stryker fans out there to give their opinions on the best way to finish this plane - and maybe describe some of your techniques.
