Having read the Oratex manual loads of times and watched the very useful You Tube bits I made my first venture into covering …
Started with preparing a strip for covering over the joints ahead of the top covering. This will prevent fretting later.
First use of the HotMelt glue which seems to go on very easily .. they state one thin coat for metal (two for wood). Brush just washes out in water … so nice and easy.
Rudder and elevator joints done and also the first strut
Having treated both the metal joints and the full back of a strip of the material – leave it to fully dry today before cutting pieces to wrap around the joints.
