Hi All, thought I would post a couple of pictures of my first rubber band model kit build.

I ended up using UHU blue glue stick to hold the tissue in place then water+PVA to fix the edges. I tried the included dope in a tube with the kit but didn't really like it. I purchased some EZE-Dope and found it to be much nicer to use. I tried spraying it from a mist bottle with a ratio of 10% EZE-dope and 90% water and this gave the best results. I Also tried brushing a 50/50 mix but found this was a bit much and ended up giving a shinny finish I didn't like. Next build I will defiantly only mist on the low ratio mix. I substituted the included balsa cement for Elmers Glue-all and found this to be nicer to work with. all in all I'm happy with it. Only regret is brushing dope on the wings, it was not needed and actually looked nicer before but I know for the next build. Gwillows L-19 and Lancer are already in the post!
