    I have enough for the bottom wing halves, stab/ele, rudder, and struts.

    You do use the super light fabric the won that is not certified.

    Somewhere around four or five, if I had ordered some from the start I would have ordered six. It all depends on how well the individual can cut the pieces without waste and how little one needs extra on lapping.

    Pic one is the bottom side of the right stab/ele, I am going to cover the ele first. Pick 2, I will brush a coat of adhesive around the perimeter taking care to not slather it on the hinge, some won't hurt it but try to keep it clean, and let it dry. If there is any shiny like noted by the arrow it is not dry. Pic three is the fabric cut to fit closely and notched for the hinges. Pic four is in progress, I like to use a piece of parchment paper as much as possible so less cleaning of the iron is needed. Pic five is the fabric ironed in place. This part is not any different than any iron on method as far as technique. The next part is the more involved part and may have to wait until tomorrow as it requires the use of Poly brush of which I don't want to do inside. And I do not I think I want to get that involved today. Just not feeling it today.

    Nice like the idea on the parchment paper will have to try that. Looking at the pictures. You have cut in the covering at the hinges so that you cat slip the covering through to the other side when on the other side do glue it all the way around that stick.

    Just to the top edge then the other side will overlap to the hinge.
