Hobby Lobby didn't seem to have it, or at least didn't find it with their search and nothing of the sort was on their coverings page.

Where did you see it? And what was the brand name?

I use laminator film for covering.

Light, easy to use and takes paint without the need for undercoat.

I think he meant Hobby Lobby the large craft stores. Not the model web site. I believe the brand he discused is a heat shrink gift wrap. Probably good for small electrics.

If true - then yes, I've used that stuff to cover foam wing models. Has no adhesive, however, and you need to spray 3M-77 or a similar contact type cement (that won't melt foam!) in order to stick the covering on. Call it iron-on fuel proofing - it adds no strength or torsional stability - though it does heat shrink at low temps, so it doesn't melt the foam.
