Default mica film

I have been using micafilm for years and it is still on many of the planes I originally covered in it.

It has the silk span look but is finished and fuel proof from the go...

It shrinks just like monocoat but is impervios to the shattering that mylar based coverings are over time.

My Mini Challenger . . . 20 years old . . still has the original top sheet in trans red I put on when I built it and has only been reshrunk twice since I covered it. . . .

It is had to find but ask in the for sale forum and several rolls will turn up.

If you want that silkspan look without all the work but strength of monocoat, this is the only want to go.
