Hi
Nice to read how modellers build useing different methods, all the best for test flight.
Going back to the vinyl covering if you have a waterproof surface you can put lots of water with a drop of washing up liquid on and float the vinyl on gently remove excess water with tissue or soft cloth put in warm place for day or so vinyl will be stuck with no air bubbles if you do not believe try a bit of scrap as a test
Let's hope for better weather
Ian

Bad news the maiden did not go well. I have to admit that it is all my fault by filling a substandard horn on the elevator that gave way 5 m after release. It is beyond repair. So will have to do better. Fox R.I.P. but at least the asw 27 works.
