Since I have a second kit, but it's missing a canopy, I'm going to give vacuum forming a try. The plaster cast is looking good so far.

Yep, covering should go slow Dave. Just take your time, way quicker than primer and paint.

Re: What size engine? (Started Komander build... finally)

I forgot how much of a pain in the butt it is stretching covering around wing tips, but it's still going OK. Bottom of the wing done now. Just the top, the trim, the control surfaces, put in the radio... getting there.
