Perforated film eh? Where does one find that slick building aid??

I got this stuff from R&G in Germany http://www.r-g.de/en/ But you can get it from CST as well.http://www.cstsales.com/release_film.html Usually in the vacuum bagging department. Same as peel-ply but much smoother finish. I'll still have to sand (but not much) and finish with clear lacquer.

555. Heh. Palindrome to Lil.
Next? I think I'm gonna lite glass (0.6 ounce ) the trailing edge to make a little something for a gap seal / wiper thing...then a little more Kevlar (live hinge) then a little more STF on the bottom of control surfaces, (aileron & flap) then a little MoneyKote. What color ???

IHAVAWDY,

STF on only 1 surface of the flaps & ail? Wouldn't both top & bottom give a stiffer & more torsionally stable platform? What about a 45* lite glass face to the front edge of the flaps & ail (ala Dr. Drela)? You going with a Kevlar over silicone live hinge? Why the clear lacquer?

Questions, questions. I'm full of them, or something tonight. Looking good!

Nevermind.....

My blog is filled with build logs.
Some other peoples blogs just have a single article that is........just about them. ;-)

Come to think of it: No. I'm running low on morels, I gotta hit up my morel "dealer". I did get some fresh shrooms at the market today. Button, crimini, oyster, and a couple I don't know the names of, but I do know they taste good. Maybe I'll make some mushroom soup later.

Doing a great job woody, you've already done a lot more designing and building than some who thrive on just doling out online advice and needless criticisms (T, deal with yourself), the builders here know you won't miss a step and will assess things stage by stage, we will all learn by it.

There are lighter things than silicone for live hinging and i bet you know what they are too.

Well, I could put some soup cans or rocks or something?....but it'd just be for looks cuz the tape is holding them flat to the glass
