Roo, well done this build is turning into a lovely model. The added bonus is you will end up with a model with a superb flight performance at a fraction of the cost of a European glass ship. Regards John.
Thanks John. It has been a difficult build

Roo, great work, nearly there. The Maughmer Winglets really look great on the ASH31. Regards John.

May I ask what Vinyl you use Roo, and where do you get it from. Reason for asking is I have a refurbished Wik Astir, the wings of which need re-covering and I am reluctant to spray them as I don't think the paint will adhere well to the old epoxy painted surface which was peeling all along the leading edge and required a lot of restoration.
Thanks
Colin.

I get it from zoom signs on eBay for £9 for 5m or £17 for 10m.

Thanks Roo
Really appreciate the response.
I’ll order 10m and give vinyl a go.

Love your models by the way.
