Default Plan protection while building

When I was building models some years ago we used wax paper over them. When I look at the waxpaper now it seems very skimpy. What is used now on large builds?

Great Planes plan protector works very well. Completely protects the plan from CA, Sig Bond, etc.

Wax paper. I also use Titebond II primarily so little chance of a bunch of CA heating up and melting through the wax.

Especially useful for large builds is clear plastic sheeting found in such places as the paint department of big box home improvement stores.

I always save the backing sheets off of Monocote, makes a good plan protector.
