Don, its 1/18, and its all Eze-Dope. Using acrylic for final colors. John, don't know yet. Suggestions?

This is turning out super. How are you going to fillet the fuse and wing?

Peter Rake had the same thing happen during his review of Eze-Dope, but I don't think that it tightened up to the original tauntness. Nitrate Forever!!!!!!!!!

Very nice. What's the scale? and are the wings done with that same stuff as the tail feathers?

Covered with 2 coats of Eze-Dope, turned out okay. When I painted with Model Masterrs' acrylic the tissut relaxed and then tightened up again. Any H2O makes the tissue relax and then it tightens up again.

Covering the wing, ran out of tissue. Tried some grey tissue, poor stuff. Stole some tissue from another kit to finish.

Got the fuselage covered and a coat of grey paint.

I agree with Huey. It makes me happy.

Me too. Thanks.

After your review, I think that I will stick with Nitrate!

One more thing, I've been putting on several coats. Each time you apply a coat the tissue wrinkles up quite a bit. the more coats the less the wrinkles. It seems to settle down after 4 coats. I've had to cut out the worst wrinkles and patch them. Didn't want to recover the whole area. This stuff is tough, cutting with a #11 took some effort.

Okay, here ya go Don. I'm old school, Nitrate. I put 3 to 4 coats of thinned Eze on the frame where I will cover. I read a review of the product on Stick & Tissue, thinned the product as suggested. The coatings placed on the frame was thinned 50%. As I tacked the tissue around the edges, the tissue would pucker up, because of the water base. I'd try to smooth it out with my finger, stretching both sides at the same time and puckers would show up. As the material would dry it would slowly lay down. But winkles would show up on the frame. Nitrate doses not do this ( no H2O ).After the material dried, I lightly wetted the tissue to shrink it. After it dried, I applied a light coat od 50% material, the tissue looked like it was wetted with water. It tightened up nice, but there were winkles showing up that weren't there before. Oh, as I coated the frame I sanded each time with 400. The one thing I don't like is the feel of the product on your skin. Even after washing the brush out with Dawn, and my fingers, my skin feels weird. Nitrate dry's and peels off the skin, this stuff feels alien. As I continue I'll add more info. If you take your time it does look good. Learning curve.
