I have just started a Sterling Ringmaster using plans I downloaded and had printed off in a nearby town. Since this will be my first "fuel model", is there anything I should do extra up around the nose section in covering the model? Huh

You could put some epoxy or fuel proof dope near the nose, before you cover. Especially on the firewall, etc. The coating may help the covering stick better too. If this is a typical "glo" powered model, the oil doesn't burn off but tends to get into the wood. There may be other clever ways to deal with it.

BTW, it's probably a good idea to have something, maybe window cleaner, to get all that goo off your model after flight. You'll need paper towels and/or rags. And make sure you dry out or wash out the rags if you don't want a fire later.
