Default covering

I'll repeat my email to you. Buy a some books. Suggestions for three good ones: Tom's Techniques by Harry Higley (R/C Modeler lists it in their anthology section); Covering R/C Airplanes volumes 1 & 2 by Faye Stilley. Published by Model Airplane News. Most good hobby shops carry them. No freebies on the web that I know of. Regards.

Default Monokote

Check the following link for a fairly good tutorial on Monokote. Can be applied to most heat-shrink wrappers for your flying balsa/foam creations.
