Shin Tutorial?

#1
Hey I I wonder are there any tutorials showing the process to make skins. I really am interested in trying it. Also I tried to upload the plans to software and only one page will show just the first page.

First, welcome to the forum & the hobby. By skin, do you mean using Dollar Tree Foam Board by wrapping it around formers? If so you can search YouTube for Experimental Airlines & find entry level techniques for wrapping DTFB into moulded shapes. FT videos are available but tend to move fast & don’t often linger on the details of the techniques.
If by skins you mean tinted coatings check out this link:

Wow, nice. I use tinted cellophane tape to decorate with a few contrasting colors, nothing complicated or difficult. What you have in mind is way outta my wheel house but I’ll be watching. Good luck, help will come from here & I bet it might even come from that link I sent. I’ll probably use his product for a Cub I’m building.
