I laid up some cloth and resin to make a sheet, I am using it to make the landing gear cover and door I will also use it for servo hatch covers

It is easy to work with, I can cut it with scissors Till Next Time! Jerry B

Hi Jerry,
Just caught sight of your thread. I like balsa builds. What a long lay-off though. Better get on with it now as when you retire you'll have no time.
I've been retired 16 years now and have little to show for it. So much for the plan of "5 builds a year in retirement".
I just built my first planked curvy fuselage, but I used aliphatic and wet each strip before applying. Then lots of clamps and pins, and wait and wait. I had to cut each strip tapered, then trip away the big end and sand a curve into that side. It's a lot of work, isn't it? I tried cyano but it stuck to my fingers in preference to the wood.
Keep posting updates,
