Fabric covering question

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I'm planning on recovering a 1/3 scale Cub I bought used. I've only ever used iron on plastic film but I don't think it will do this plane justice. I was planning on useing Coverite iron on fabric. However I just came across "Sig heat shrinkable Koverall" which it says needs to either be doped on or ironed on using " SIG Stix-It heat-activate covering adhesive" Does anybody have experience with this Sig covering? Does anyone have any other covering suggestions? This aircraft requires quite a bit of covering. I would like to do it economically but I also want to do a good job. Thanks for any input.

It might be best to keep this subject in one forem only.

You'll probably get better responses and answers to your questions as folks wanting to post can build on what others have already commented about. In two or more forems, you'll probably get different folks saying the same things over and over and you won't get the quality of info you would have otherwise. Just a thought! And you will have to keep jumping back and forth between forems to get your answers.
