Default My first glassing project... Need help!

Hi guys, I have several questions. I want to build a Top Flite Corsair 60 Gold Edition for my new 1.20 4 stroker. First is it possible to glass this kit? I have bee replied in another posting that this shouldn't be my first glassing project. Is it really that hard? If you reallt think I should start with something else, what nice kit would you recommend for this engine and glassing? Thanks in advance guys!

Regards,
Homero

I'm sure anything's possible if you put your mind to it. I'm building an 88" wing span Cessna for a customer from scratch. I'm using carbon graphite instead of fiberglass but I'm sure you can still pull it off since many model airplanes are made of fiberglass

Can you be more secific than "Can I glass this kit?" I am guessing, which is always dangerous, that you wish to apply a lightweight cloth to sheeted surfaces. Is this so?.

Yes Ed, I want to fiberglass the whole fuse and wings, which are fully balsa sheeted. But the rudder and stabilizer are not sheeted, what do you recommend in this surfaces?
I am pretty much dessisting on the idea to do my first glassing project on this TF Corsair, I have several guys telling me to first go and do a Sig King Kobra or a Kougar first. Any other kit that you would recommend for a first timer?
Thanks,
Homero
