Repairing small internal cracks in tight spaces
Hi folks, been aero-modelling for 40 years, mostly control line aerobatics etc, with Balsa and nylon, I am new to fibreglass.
I've had a nice outrunner powered 2 meter aileron glider for a few years now and it now needs a bit of TLC to the areas around the wing fixings inside the fibreglass fuselage.
Trouble is it is small in there and the re-enforcement only needs some glass cloth (or similar ?) around 2cm x 1cm. I have got some very lightweight woven glass cloth (from a friend who uses it to skin wings on Team Racers) and I have got some Flair brand resin.
I simply cannot get the small patches to stick where I need them. I just get in a right mess with the patch sticking to everything (fingers, small brushes, etc) and it won't stay neatly in the right place. I end up pulling the mess of cloth out before the resin fires so as not to leave a "set" mess in the tight space !
Any tips folks ?
