    System 3 Epoxy

    Hi Guys,
    I'm using the System 3 Epoxy and light fiberglass cloth on a N.P. P-38. It is the first time using epoxy and class cloth on a model and I was able to get some good advice on line through RCU on how to do this. I used to use fiberglass resin and cloth...but I managed to get a real bad reaction using this. I used playing cards to wipe and squeegy the excess epoxy and it worked great. I'm now finishing the pilot pod for my P-38, then eventually do the whole model the same.

    Has anyone any tips you can give me...: )

    Soft Landings Always,
    Bobby of Maui

    RE: System 3 Epoxy

    After I get the cloth saturated with resin I take a paper towel and blot the excess resin off. This makes the finish sanding much less time consuming and reduces weight.
    Of course it's true, I read it on the Internet.
