Kim I am sure I have it but save me the time to search...send me your physical address...I have a LOT of SLC I will never use...happy to send you a yard or two

Super Lite Covering..as far as I know Phil Cartier of Core House is exclusive out let...big plus is..the stuff is very durable as well as light and surprisingly low cost

additionally...Bobby Mears in Lubbock Texas has a series of Combat Plane covering techniques using SHRINK plastics like you see on flower baskets and stuff... very lite weight and totally fuel proof...BUT he cheats and builds the wing... then takes the shrink stuff and with a heat sealer/cutter makes a sack to put the wing in...the just shrinks the sucker to be 100% encased

The there is Larry Reneger who suggested Using SLC, Mica Film, or other lite Doculam products OVER heat shrink Polyspan and ZERO dope...saving weight, being fuel proof and built in glossy finish

Thanks man! The driving force behind all this is the memories (real and sometimes 'augmented'---I can get confused) of prepping for all those ballpark Sundays. My Breezy Hill Buds and the S.M.A.L.L. Fun-Fly crowd give me constant jolts of this stuff with the projects they show up with!

Great project. I hate when I get behind on my forum perusing, but this one was fun. Thanks for the entertainment.

Thanks Rusty!

I've also missed entire threads here, and then found them later on.  This has been a fun little diversion that came out of the blue, and I've highly enjoyed the sporadic work sessions toward getting this little plane flying, and ready for Fall S.M.A.L.L.!

It's almost ready to rock now, and the first time in a long time that I finished a plane in a week!   A whole lot fancier than I could build with my 14 year-old hands back in the day, but maybe it'll last a bit longer than those I built in a single evening!
