Its kind of hard to explain...also I find that it is difficult to trim and keep the edges perfectly straight and ironed down well because when finished, it looks like cloth, is thick, and can actually frey like cloth. You have to really work and ironing down those edges to look good and even then, your bound to get wrinkles.
I think I keep repeating myself here....Doh.....I hope I know what I mean..
If using fabric, I prefer to use a product like Super Shrink or Super Coverite which is also fabric that has the glue on the back but is NOT painted. It goes on beautifully and is very easy comparatively. Then when the model is completely covered, you paint it yourself sealing all the edges with paint. It goes on so well, you can hardly find the edges once painted and it looks very authentic for scale models replicating their full sized counterparts. A Piper J3 Cub for example.
