RE: Fiberglassing a Byron Hellcat
The Hellcat was a wire cut wing and stab that MUST be sheeted with balsa before the finishing process. After you sheet the wing, then you can either finish in a film or glass and paint. That plane really deserves a full glass and paint finish job. As above, 3/4oz cloth and Pacer Zpoxy finishing resin is your best choice for the wings and tail. You need to use polyester resin to glass the formers in the fuse.
It is very good looking plane when finished, and it flies awesome. It is NOT for beginners, or even intermediates. The building process needs to be altered some from what is in the instructions. They use some iffy control hookups and such.
It should be painted with a gun and auto or epoxy paint. A rattle can finish will not get the finish that the planes deserves. It can be done, but be prepared to sand and repaint often. You will get runs, dry spots, and not enough coverage all at the same time with a can. It simply does not put out a consistent, large pattern of paint.
