    Completely recovering this edge for a buddy. New badass scheme is picked out and covering and hinges are here. Next time I promise to have my work surface free of debris.

    I'll be watching! Need to learn because I've got to cover a Viper when I get it built

    Covering is only has hard as one "over thinks" it to be, or as hard as their patience level makes it. Looking forward to seeing what you do with this one.

    Thanks. I have posted my scheme before but I think for now I'm just gonna let everyone ponder what it might do to it and watch it as it all unfolds. I will share that it will be orange and green.

    Orange and green don't normally go together, this will be interesting to see what you have up your sleeve!!

    What I have drawn up on paper looks nice. The orange is pretty dark as well. Almost a red.

    These are the two rolls I have to use. 45' of the orange and 30' of the green.

    Well I got it all stripped down. Stabs and elevators are in great shape, wings and rons are as well other than a cracked piece of sheeting in one wing, fuse can stand some glue to be wicked in in some areas, but the rudder OMG. Can't believe the counterbalance hadn't fallen off in flight. Basically it's completely broke free on one side and the other side only a small amount of sheeting is still holding it. Amazing the covering could keep it all together. TE was cracked up pretty good as well but was fixed by wicking in some thin CA. Now on to melting out the hinges, drawing up my patterns for the covering and to start laying it down. Next week should see some color.
