If you do decide to cover, you need to be VERY careful when trying to apply covering over ABS as it will not take the heat well and can distort easily. So very low heat...just enough to stick. If you saved some scrap ABS you can test out prior to trying on model.
Ok, so i decided to glue the wing tips and cover them, i practiced in ABS scrap from the cowl and looks nice, i made three tests, with very hot: looks nice but when everything cools down bubbles start to appear(
), medium hot: the same as very hot(
), low heat: nice, hard to get the glue work, but almost no bubbles!!(
So next step is to get started with covering, the wing tips are already glued for now, so hands on deck!! to work!!
