if youre gonna glass it do not use the woven stuff unless you plan on cutting out ant pasting every little piece (it does not bend well) if you do this its like taking a swift kick in the nuts :nuts: (youll soon regret the idea that you could do it and not get frustrated or cry)
if you go to home depot you can get fiber glass and resin kits for inbetween $11 and $15 (depends on where you live and what quality)
if youre real lucky you can find the stuff that has the glass fiber already in it
in both applications you need a sacrificial brush and like longshot said a support system
in most cases great stuff expanding foam about $4 a can found near insulation
foam it and glass it
I'v found that u can use fiberglass casting tape (like the stuff they wrap u n when u break ur arm) to re-enforce the inside like ribs and it wont deform or get the paper wet or out of shape. this also eleminates the need for lots of hot stuffy and heavy insulation foam.
whatever, it says on the side "fiberglass casting tape" besides I'v used it before. Just because I'm new at this site dosent mean I'm new to model making. I kno what I'm doing, this stuff is great for re-enforcing stuff.
