Aerodrome RC gets big bucks for it. Thanks to Walt I think we hit the jackpot Gents. :D Search E-zone for the polyspan threads for more info. Martin

I wonder it that polyester dress liner is the same as Koverall which a nice polyester heat shrink material that Sig sells?

Koverall is a woven cloth material, Heavy! Polyspan or Samspan is a random fiber material like dress lining. Dress lining apparently comes in various weights but the actual Polyspan is quite light. After about five or six coats of very thin dope it is almost exactly the same weight as Litespan. Don't try to dope it on like tissue. Use Balsarite or Sig Stix-it and iron it on. Then dope it to seal it. I think it is the easiest covering material of all to use. Just be careful sanding it. If you raise a "fuzz" it will take a lot more dope to smooth it out. That's my experience with it.

I check my e-mail while eating breakfast, but I haven't figuredout how to get coffee staind out of balso, so I don't build during meals --- I know, I know, it's a weakness. sorry )-:

That will be too cool Martin!!!!Steve

The right darkness of coffee can make balsa look like some kinds of varnished hardwood. Have to expirement a bit with the grade of balsa and the strength of the coffee. Tea might also work.

Regualr or decaf?

dark roast works well for dying tissue if sprayed on with an atomizer when shrinking it. Makes 'em smell good, too!

Okay guys, the guessing game starts (-: Here are photos of the rudder and stab for my Dr.1. Please remember this is a sport scale model and I ran into some dimensional problems trying to fit the full scale scheme to this version

WWI Ace 10-28-2005 11:38 PM

Walt. Is it Fokker DrI 403/17 flown by Ltn Johann Janzen of Jasta 6, March 1918? Steve
