Default RE: Four Star 60 Turtle Deck Sheeting

I did not need to steam the thin plywood. In fact, it is so thin that I cut the curve for the cockpit with a pair of scissors. It lays over the complete turtle deck with the ease of the cardboard from a case of soda pop. In fact I used this type of cardboard for my initial pattern to cut the plywood.

I've looked everywhere for my camera, with no luck, so I don't have any pictures of the finished turtle deck sheeting. I started covering it today with Coverite, safety yellow and midnight blue. I will cover the bottom of the fuse & 3/4 up the sides with safety yellow. The whole one piece wing is midnight blue with safety yellow on the ailerons and each wing-tip. I will finish the top 1/4 on each side of the fuse, along with the top and turle deck in midnight blue. Maybe I can track a camera down by the time I have this ready to fly.
