Buy the lightest colour you can from Balsa USA and paint it.

That is the other option, I can do that with 21rst Century fabric covering, and another option is to just not crash again, but hey  8) :laugh: :P

If you have 55 minutes to spare, watch his presentation on the whole topic, at post #13. It includes the background of DS and the evolution of the aircraft involved.

The whole area of transonic flight is one which we would never think about with non-military model aircraft - and certainly not gliders! Good Q & A at the end of his seminar.

Great achievement, excellent video of something that is almost impossible to track. The discussions in the forum are also interesting and informative.

I've tried everywhere as has Leading Edge, the factory that made it has shut down with no plans to make it elsewhere, Balsa USA has some  colours left but no OD green. Coy sent me an email saying he may have some so there is hope. Until then I better not park her again...lol

Thanks for the addition, GG. I did not know of others, outside of the aviation community, that use CorrosionX.


HEY, Brad - do you use it in your marine servicing business?

DS
I have been using Corrosion-x for about 20 years. I first discovered it while sailing, and used it widely, especially on the radar connectors which hate salt. It is incredible as you say. One outstanding feature, it is the best nut and bolt release agent. no matter how rusty or jammed, this stuff will get in there overnight and Bob's your uncle!
The last time I bought it was at Westmarine, but they have now closed. You don't need much. They sold it in 2 ounce bottles, and I've still got a bit left after years.

Solartex used to be my, and many others, favorite covering material many years ago. Nice to see that it is still available.
One of its finest attributes is that it forms a very nice carrying sack to transport the pieces if you have a severe encounter with a tree or the ground ... or so I have been told :)

Another possibility is to use Fibafilm (used to be called Micafilm). I once got some through Leading Edge. It is the highest strength/weight stuff you can get, being a slightly shrinkable Mylar based film with impregnated fibres, smooth on one side, slightly textured on the other. It has no stick-um, so you used something like Balsarite (hard to get now, possibly no longer available), Mod Podge (get at Michaels) or similar adhesive, apply just where needed and use heat iron to activate. If you apply the materia with rough side out, spray or brushed paint will adhere nicely and your plane will look more "fabricy", like the original full scale. If you are interested, I can see if I still have some hidden away in my Cave.
