Hey there Jim,
I have not seen any 40 size uproars with plugin wings. However, I have no doubt that with a little ingenuity it could be done.
I assume that you are familiar with the 60 size Uproar...

Vince,
I have used the TopFlight trim solvent on Monokote only. I use a Q-tip to apply. Very little goes a long way. On the occasions I have used it, it was great.

Applying Trim

For applying overlay trim, I do not think there is a better way. I do the same thing except - I usually use my TopFlight trim iron and it does not have a variable heat setting. Either High or Low and...
