In case I never mentioned this, I love this model. It almost looks too good to fly. It's the kind of thing you'd expect see in Richard Henson's office at PI HQ in Salisbury, Maryland. Well done.

What tissue do you use

What tissue do you use?

I have used coffee filters, but would like a larger covering for larger models. I looked at Dollar Tree tissue paper used for gifting. It is thinner than coffee fliter, and tears easily when Polycrylic is applied. I tested it with polycrylic with Talc and light weight spackle and it did not tear the tissue. It looks like a good cover, and it sands and paints well. Please let me know how you apply your coverings.
