Covering the Fuselage


Hi Guys,
Ok I am still at it and getting close to being done! I used Aerolite Covering on this Airplane. Works great They have a PATCH Pak wihich is cool so you do
not need to buy full rolls. I get the backing off by putting a piece of masking tape one on each corner and pull, works good. Also I put some Baby Power on the side that iron's down, to Keep it from sticking to it self. While working with it! Still have the wing struts to make up, so back to it Its a fun airplane to build!!!
Here are some photos of where I am at now.

Hi Micro Budget,
They were made by Early Aero, hand crafted in England. They are real wire-spoked wheels.
I do not think you can get them any more

Looks great Joe!

I really love those wheels. Wish they were still available.
I'll probably be relegated to making my own.

Mine's still in the package. Got a few things I need to finish up before I start it.
