Wakefield Covered

This weekend I covered the Wakefield with tissue and sprayed it with water for the initial tissue shrink.   I had to re-do a couple of panels because they weren't quite perfect, so it took a little longer than I intended.   I also had to be careful as I had just 3 sheets of white tissue and this was only just enough to cover the plane.

Next step is to clean up the edges and then apply two coats 50/50 mix of cellulose thinners and cellulose dope to do the final tissue shrink.

Covering complete, with 12" ruler to illustrate the scale.
