Covering..........After hours of careful building, shaping and sanding you can produce a lovely naked balsa model and then you have to let your standards slip by covering your model with a shrinkable, plastic film which even a Saint would loose his patience with.
After weeks of deciding which colours and scheme the day comes when the scissors and heating iron comes out and you know that compromises are about to be made. Those little creases in the covering will have to be overlooked. It's hard but being realistic when the plane is where it's designed to be, in the sky, those flaws in the covering are a lot less noticeable. At least that's what I'm telling myself.
There's still a couple of hours more work to be done but by the end of the week she should be airborne
