Default Styrospray 1000 Coating for pylon planes???

Has anyone tried this product for pylon racing planes

http://www.industrialpolymers.com/styrospray.html

Similar product is sold by WOWplanes.com under the name of Liquid Sheeting.

http://www.wowplanes.com/product_inf...roducts_id=130


Its a coating that seems to provide a great finish even without having to fiberglass the surface and without adding much weight

I´m thinking for example for Q500 balsa fuselages or for foam/balsa sheeted wings.

Any experience would be appreciated.


Description:

+ Liquid Sheeting is a coating that can be applied to foam and balsa sheeted model surfaces.
+ It is brushed on with a foam brush, and leaves a glossy, smooth, shell finish.
+ Cures in 1 hour to an almond color and can be painted with most paints and spray cans.
+ Eliminates sanding.
+ Working life is approx 30 minutes. But if kept sealed after mixing working time can be several hours.
+ Must be used at temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees and humidity above 35% for best results.
+ Storage life is about 6 months at normal room temperature.

I've used it on a Q40 plug.. It works pretty well.. I haven't tried thinning it at all so I can't comment on that. I will say that I think it would be best if you used it over a glassed surface as I doubt it would add any significant strength on its own.

Oddy, I bought some to try on a Q500, haven't finished the tails yet.

I think it would work for 424 and maybe 426, but don't know that for fact.

I do glass the insides of my fuses with Carbon veil, so I have some additional strength there as well.
