Mike,
        Silver tissue is a real mine field. The tissue I used was from Flitehook and is the best of at least 3 types I have. At least it shrinks a little when steamed. The others are impevious to water or steam shrinking and react to dope. I will revert to silver enamel for the SAAB and other silver surfaces in future. What is the weight of your Widgeon?

Ricky, sounds like the tissue in my kit, shame really as it would have looked better even though it was too shiny silver to start with. Not sure what it weighs as our scales have decided to give up the ghost, I know its not heavy, because I,ve not had to use any weight in the nose, feels quite light as well, I suppose that is the result of using a lot of 6lb wood in it.
