Nice looking model, very impressive. Hope you don't mind it I solicit some advice?
I am building a SE5a and starting to think about how to cover it. Should I use Koverall and paint it or use Solartex? What are your thoughts, what are you going to do? Here are the pros / cons as I see them.
Pro - lighter (bi-planes are tail heavy to start)
- a better finish if it is done right
Con - lots of dopeing and painting
- would have to buy an airbrush kit
Pro - easier to use, already have the skill set
Con - heavier
- may get "shadows" as the different colours are placed next to each other (see picture). Think the stripes on the rudder.
