Default RE: Hangar 9 30cc P-47 Build Thread

The first thing we wanted to do was to hit all the covering with an iron. Although the covering looked very nice out of the box, it is always a good idea to go over the entire model with an iron and sock at a moderate temperature (280 - 300 degrees) in a circular motion to ensure the covering is fully stuck down to the structure.

pic #1 shows the tools required to go over the covering.

The tools shown are:
Hangar 9 Pro Seal Iron

Hangar 9 Heat Gun

Hangar 9 Covering Glove

On occasion you may find that some tape residue may live on the covering or some color may come off the sock or foot of the iron. This is easily removed with some alcohol and a paper towel.

pic #2 shows the spot of tape residue on the wing panel.
pic #3 shows the applications of the alcohol to remove the tape residue.
pic #4 shows the tape residue is all gone.
