Frank, just got your emails. Thanks! I have a Kosdon Saturn 1B kit that I haven't started (also 1:70 like the Estes kit). Your stuff is going to make it easier to finish and look better too! So thanks again for all your hard work and for sharing it with folks on this forum!

Joe

I just requested a set. I, too, have a Kosrox kit which I purchased in the late '90s and it has been aging gracefully in the attic all this time. Also two SEMROC kits and tubes and fin pieces parts from another.

It is very generous of people like Frank and Rosco Racer for making these wraps available for the 1/70th scale and Dr. Zooch Ant scale Saturn 1Bs !!!

Chas

I have been ask. What type of clear coat would you recommend and how many coats?

I work on paper models also. When I print out a wrap or model on paper I use KRYLON UV-Resistant Clear/Acrylic coating. It protects against UV light rays, non-yellowing permanent coating, Moisture-resistant, and dries in minutes. It comes in Gloss or Matt finish. I am lucky I have a Hobby Lobby near me so I buy it there. I have seen this at wal-mart in there craft dept.

The number of coats is up to you. I spray one generous coat and let it dry for at least an hour.

Hope this helps anyone who was wondering about this.

Frank.

Frank, what adhesive do you use when applying the wraps to the tubes? Does the Krylon soak through the paper and impair adhesion in any way?

Joe, what adhesive do I use when applying the wraps to the tubes? Well, believe it or not I have good luck with Elmer's Craftbond extra strength glue stick. Everyone has their favorite type of glue . I spread about a half inch wide glue down the tube . Then I put the edge of the wrap down and secure it by rubing the edge with my finger. I set it a side and let the glue have time to set up good, around 20 or 30 minutes. Then I go on working with the wrap.

Does the Krylon soak through the paper and impair adhesion in any way? So far I have never had any trouble with the Krylon interfering with the bond of the glue. I do use 28 pound weight paper for my wraps and paper models.

Hope this ansures your questions.

Frank.

Joe,

I do lots of wraps. I print them directly onto full-sheet label paper. That way they are self adhesive. Once they are covered with a clear-coat shell, they never peel off. I use an HP inkjet printer and Rustoleum Painter's Touch clear (available at Home Depot) is what I use to coat them.

I wrote a tutorial on how I apply wraps here.

Gus- great tutorial on wraps. Don't know how I missed this in the past, but will be using these techniques in the future. Invaluable perspective from a very talented builder.
