Fliteskin sheeting and G10

http://www.fliteskin.com/index.html If no balsa sheeting and less sanding sounds good check this site out. has anyone tried this stuff.???
Also a source for small sheets of G10....I wonder how hard it would be to make this sheeting up yourself using mylar film and glass panels with the fiberglass and resin in between... HMMMMM might be worth a try.?? Price per sheet is not bad considering the cost of balsa,fiberglass and resin.Its the shipping from Florida that would hurt.

Just like the description says.....saves endless hours of epoxying and sanding. Looks like its more intended for scale. Would be great on a foam core wing panel.

I used to make up sheets of glass for fast repairs when racing. Usually about a foot sq but can not see why a guy could not go larger. My method was use a piece of glass cleaned and waxed. Lay your glass cloth, which I used 1 1/2 oz and dabble on epoxy. I then spread it with a playing card getting it all wet and scraping off as much as I could. Let sit overnight and remove the next day and trim. I used a wide flexible putty knife for taking it off the glass. Flexibility is fine unless you fold it and you will then see the stress crack which you then have to re-epoxy. One side is fabric type finish the other side is glass smooth. Remove the wax before finishing or gluing.

Keep the shiny side up and the wheels down

It seems a little expensive to me.I have covered a wing (open bays) with Sig Koverall and used epoxy finishing resin over it.It comes out like smooth fiberglass.The next time I am going to lay it up on glass and make my one sheets I think it will be a lot cheeper and I don't think it's that hard.
Just my two cent's worth
