Re: Ezkote on balsa

I just finished the tail on my Rare Bear using EZCote and glass cloth. If you use light cloth and follow the directions VERY little weight is added, far less than glass and epoxy. A very large majority evaporates, requiring many coats to fill in the weave of even 1/2oz cloth.

Just remember to brush on a coat before light sanding and application of the cloth. The cloth will add quite a strong layer to the plane before painting.
I know there's money in aviation........I put it there!
