Default RE: scaling monokote?

[quote][I am going to use monokote 'cause I want that extra tensile strength (especially where the skin is thinner than I like) /quote]

Monocote will not give you that extra strength. it is some of the easiest stuff to tear I have ever seen (besides the tissue stuff) plus it doesnt look scale, it just looks like plastic
take a piece of it, make a little cut on an edge, then watch how easily it tears
glassing the fuse would look the best but if you dont want to do that, go with a fabric: 21st century, solartex, or my favorate, Sig Koverall with a dope finish.
with a plane that nice, it would be a shame to use a plastic covering
hope this helps
