Default Mono-Kote A Cowl ?


IT IS worth the effort to cover glass with MonoKote, however I did give you the wrong info in my last post. The mag. that the article was in is Model Airplane News (don't know the issue) by Faye Stilley.

I usually have only one seam on cowls and wheel pants and have not had any come off or even loosen. The glass needs proper preparation to remove the mold release wax, gloss and of course oil from your hands. You start at the high point and use a trim iron doing only about 1/8" at a time I use a iron with a curved bottom. It takes a little time and effort but you don't have to buy costly paint that won't match (I always have MonoKote left over so there is no extra cost).

Get the copy of M.A.N. with the article (do a search) or buy the book, Covering R/C Airplanes by Faye Stilley.
