How much fabric?

Postby Uwe Jens » Thu Oct 25, 2007 6:27 pm

Hi guys,
I am having some trouble with my inventory and the packing list is not too specific in some things.  I have a doubt.  I´ve seen that  in some kits some of you are using two types of fabric.  One for the kit´s bottom and other for the wings and the rest of fuselage.  I received one roll of fabric of 50 yards.  The superflite medium.  My question is if this is enough to cover the kit?  Do I need other kind of fabric for the fuselage bottom?  
Thanks,
Uwe/. :?

Uwe, 50 yards is supposed to be enough to do the whole plane. I bought another 10 yards of heavyweight to do the underside of tail feathers and fuselage do to my habits of water and gravel operations.

I just used the same medium weight for the whole plane.  The one roll is enough.  Don't waste too much though.
