We’ve received several emails asking about covering scale models. While I was building my the 1/4-scale Sopwith Camel project, I wrote this post that goes into detail about what’s required. Your response was impressive and many of you asked about Scale Stits fabric and Poly Tak adhesive, from F&M Enterprises. So, I brought the video camera into the workshop and made these How To Videos. Included are all the steps and techniques I used to cover one of the ailerons of my Sopwith Camel, while highlighting useful tips and tricks. Personally, I think it is very easy to do. The polyester fabric and the heat activated adhesive are simple to apply. Here ya go. Enjoy
Scale Stits and the Poly Fiber covering system is designed to work together to produce an easy to apply and durable fabric covered finish.
The most important things for a great finish a clean work surface and sharp X-Acto blades.
See the How To videos below.
