    EeZeBilts From Keil Kraft
    Have you tried this material Doug? far and away the best aircraft/general purpose covering you can use. It's a thinner version of the stuff they use on full sized aircraft and you can shrink it tight as a drum. Great puncture resistance as well (better than Solarfilm or any other plastic covering. Great for cabin tops/sides etc as well, (could even cover a hull with it, - just dope it, trim it and paint it) It's about all I use on planes as I got sick of expensive Solarfilm and others going slack in the sun (it's very stable and doesn't move) Slightly heavier than plastic but a lot easier to apply and you don't need an iron, just dope, a
    hair dryer
    and a bit of practice at knowing when to stop shrinking. You can just go along your wing (for eg) and 'tune' each section by flicking it with your finger and heating where necessary. Bruddy marverus stuff. John B

    Re: Stern Module assembly
    Hi Pete, "I have now purchased my chosen motors. They are MFA 360. ... I wonder if I have to put the usual three suppressors on the motors if running a 40Mhz transmitter." Most definitely!! Considering the attenuation of RF signals under water the last thing you want to do is take risks with interference๐Ÿ˜ฎ As the RF signal level falls off when you dive the boat any local interference, i.e. from the motors, will become more significant at the RX input. Re warped stern parts. You could try gently (and I mean gently Bentley!) warming the part (
    hair dryer
    ?) while weighting it down on a flat surface. You may want to put some shaped wood block supports inside to ensure the part does not bend inwards. Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Re: The Waterline/Boot Topping.
    I managed to fit the Trimline tape together with the rest of the decals. The tape didn't want to stick properly where it folded over the spray rails, so I tried heating it carefully with a hot air paint stripper and then pressing it into place while warm. That seems to have done the trick and it still looks to be OK this morning. A
    hair dryer
    would have been safer (cooler) but I don't have one and I didn't dare 'borrow' one from my wife!๐Ÿคฃ

    46'' RAF Crash Tender
    Hello Red In the past Iโ€™ve found heating plastic suddenly has resulted in flat areas warping or distorting as the area intended is straightened. To get round this I twisted the plastic and held it in correct position with clamps etc and then gradually warmed with a
    hair dryer
    which can be moved away if distortion starts to appear
