Wakefield is covered

More progress. I’m ready to dope the covering. In the past I have used two coats of Sig dope thinned 50/50.

Right now the Sig Silkspan is pre-shrunk with a mist of water which tightens it up for a smooth finish as it dries. After two coats of the nitrate dope is applied the fun begins with painting.

This model has been built as it would have been 80 years ago.

What do you guys usually use?
