Default Monocote over FG fuse?

Is it possible to cover a fiberglass fuse with monocote?

( I haven't painted a fuse -yet , so I think covering might be easier way.....)

The fuse is from an ARC kit, not primed, not sanded... just plain white stuff...

Thanks and regards.

Hi!
It's possible but it will not stick that good and it will not be an easy thing to do...but with Oracover it's much easier...it sticks much better to glassfiber than Monokote.
Some pictures of my balsa /glassfiber /Oracover covered Marutaka DC-3.

Hi Jaka,

That's a good news to me...

So I understand that I can cover my FG model with oracover with no additional work.

Thank you very much for quick answer.

Regards.
