Default RE: *Fiberglass (Gel-coated) fuse*

Do you know if the horizontal stab and vertical fin are epoxyed into the fiberglass or into wood? Never had a fiberglass fuse before.
ORIGINAL: carrellh

The fiberglass fuselages can look really good. My brother has a Kyosho AT-6 and it has lots of 'scale' details molded in (panel lines and various bumps and indentations) the fiberglass, so it's a really good looking model.

If the fiberglass gets damaged you usually lose the beautiful finish unless you really have the right stuff [and the talent] to properly do the repairs. Also, repairing glass is different than repairing wood and covering.
