OH NO! At least being all stick built it'll be a quick and easy repair.
Yup. I would kick myself if I knew how. Your comment about stick built being easy is right on. I made a new half fuselage this afternoon and evening, even taking a break to watch Harvick win the Pocono race. A little touch up sanding and it'll be ready to cover. Four flat sheets of document laminate film won't take long. Another great thing about doculam is patch seams are invisible.
It would be so nice if they would have laminating film in colors, I won an Apprentice 15E and was going to sell it but decided to keep it. I am going to laminate it with 1.5 mill to protect the foam from light dents and dirt works excellent for this purpose.
Colors would be great for us airplane builders but we are re-purposing a product. I think document laminating film caught on first as a protective covering for foam airplanes. I'd like to see how your Apprentice turns out.
