Thanks Alan
The covering material is "VLIES" , I think its something like "polyspan" , for the engine I'm gonna use petrol .
My Tomboy covered with "vlies"

Hi Jef, very nice work and a interesting engine!
I buildt this winter an BB Falcon, equipped with a Laser 80 Diesel and with a detachable towing-clutch. I covered the model with SIG Koverall which is easy to apply and very strong. The decals are self made water slide decals. Unfortunately Im not allowed to upload pictures since I have less than 10 posts ;-( But you can find it in rcgroupsdotcom Keil Kraft Falcon Report #621

This is a lovely build Jef. I have got the Keil Kraft plans from Outerzone as I get no response from Ben Buckle and so I am now planning the build.
I have one question which is, how do the two wing halves stay attached? Is it just from a good tight fit of the tongues?
