  • Scale fabric covering for Vintage Gliders?

    Years ago I remember using Solartex. I think Coverite was another. I'm planing to scratch build a Slingsby T7 and I'm researching a covering I can iron on and maybe dope but I'm not sure what's out there today. Thank you for any help.

      If you can't find the iron on fabric you desire then I will be happy to let you know how I apply Sig's Koverall if interested. I love that stuff and would never go back to 'traditional' iron-on fabrics! I used to be a Supershrink Coverite kind of guy but the rolls that I have of it are only used to make rib tapes. Koverall takes paint well and is tough. My most current project, the Professor in the 'scale sailplanes' threads shows pics of it going on the structure.

          Hi Steve,

          The fabric application process is demonstrated on the “Another T45 Swallow” thread starting at post #16.
          Its pretty similar to all fabrics that have to be glued on and sealed.
