I've been reading anything I can find written by George Perryman, his designs are far and away my favorites and his articles are quite amusing. I'm wondering, how did he do the checkerboard pattern planes in the days before custom printed tissue? Does anyone know?

If I recall correctly black & white checkered tissue was available in the 1950 through the 1970s, maybe later. I don't remember who the supplier was. I think a red & white check tissue was also available, perhaps some other colors.

I have used yellow and black and blue and black, both of a "superfine" grade, lighter than regular Japanese tissue.

OK, I searched around and have only found places that can custom inkjet print in very small sizes. A large checkerboard plane must not be do-able anymore.

It was available from Sig in I think 4 different colors.  I do not remember the cost but I do not think the premium was much or I would not have purchased any.

At his time Esaki jap tissue did checkered tissue in different colour combination.
Ask freeflightsupplies.co.uk if they have anything left.

Mike at freeflight supply had a good stash of it, thanks for the tip! Now, after paying the exchange rate and shipping to USA, this Perryman model will be burning a DT at all times!

Just in case you don't know, apply it print side down

No, the print side is waterproof and it won't shrink. It looks a bit funny shiny side down but comes good when doped. It doesn't shrink as much anyway so try to get it on as tight as you can.

Very good tip, thanks. I would have certainly applied print side out.

Still have a bit of the Esaki printed tissue and billdenis747 is correct with the application of the print side down. Found out the hard way as the black coating will smudge it a dope brush passes over it.
