You can also put a clunk on the pressure feed (third line) and drain your tank thru that line.

Zor,

Amazingly enough, that's exactly how I achieve the end result.

Rodney,

It works perfectly well without an extra clunk providing you manoeuvre the bottom line into position much like as the post above. It stays there so no need to put a clunk weight on it.

When rough shaping a LE with a razor plane, cover the LE sheeting of the wing with Duck Tape/Gaffa Tape or similar, preventing any "slips" with the razor plane from gouging the wing sheeting.

I always have short pieces of of that flexi-tubing used for push-rods leftover.
I use weed-eater cutting line for throttle cables.Use ez-connecters on both ends.Get the small weed cutting line and find a the smallest tube and it pushes through just as good as any throttle cable.I have a lifetime supply of throttle cable now.

When running a receiver antenna out the side of the fuse and attaching it to the vertical fin with a rubber band and a t-pin, I use I use a short piece of fuel tubing.I cut a small slit it the fuel tubing and run the antenna through it,and then insert a t-pin through the tubing and into the fin.This way it lasts forever.Fuel would always eat the rubber band and it would come loose.

Elmer’s, Tiebond, or any white glue is used (Titebond for me). A thin layer of glue is applied to the surfaces of the wing that will come in contact with the sheeting, and on the sheeting in the area that will contact the wing. The glue is allowed to dry (:30 in minimum) to the touch. The sheeting is then “ironed-on” using a clothes iron set to wool. The heat causes the glue to polymerize. Not sure if you can use a covering film iron or not.

I wanted to try a test piece, so I brushed-on Titebond on a 3/32” X 1/2” strip and a 1/4” square stick, both about 5” long. I used an old non-steam travel iron and bonded the two pieces together and set it aside to cool. Yep, it bonded alright!

Applying the top sheeting to the wing went smoothly. No pins, no pins holes. A much less intrusive method! I’ll be applying the cap strips the same way.

Thanks for following along!
