    Gluing tissue to various surfaces...

    I'm designing & building my 3rd model with tissue covering. The first two tissue models were mostly balsa, with some small areas of ply or bamboo. So all wood, and I glued the tissue down with a glue stick and elmers, which worked great. My current model's leading edge is a 2mm carbon rod...
