    just got the tool last year, been using it wherever I overlap covering to eliminate bubbles.

    Thanks, it’s not perfect and I had to cheat a couple times. My iron is worn out and abused... it’s scratches the covering a bit. Just got a new iron in the mail. Need to bust it out

  4. "Don't be a fool, protect your tool" use a sock or any other old tee shirt. Years ago there was a fellow that sold home made iron socks out of a back pack at Toledo, that was his motto, $1 each.

    recently tried a sock, and it was hard for me to get used to. I should really attempt it again.

    Burned out some holes, put everything together for a photo. And put a little covering over the beaver tail gap that was glued together prior.

    Spent basically my whole day putting two stripes on. Golly getting the right sizing has been tricky. Photos speak for themselves, sure looks more and more like the beaver I want it to look like!

    I love it when a plane comes together!

    Nice work! Really like the scheme you’ve chosen!

    Any insight on monocote pinstripes over ultracote covering? Monocote has a light blue that I really want to use, let me know if there is any precautions I need to know.
