Did you know ? Alternative to Balsaloc
« on: June 07, 2017, 11:33:49 AM »
 Posted  on the RCSB  forum  a tip ... Alternative product that works the same as Balsaloc  But  a lot cheaper   available on Ebay & hobby shops  for example 16 fluid oz 11.09 F&PP       against 110grams  thick end of a fiver..
 
Part of the covering topic  Quote ...If I am not mistaken Oracoat is a plastic covering material. Great for sports scale aircraft. However, both Sig

Koverall and Bemsilk are a close weaved fabric which gives a much more authentic finish to the fabric areas on your scale aircraft. Are also quite durable.

With the Bemsilk I will be using a product called Mod Podge in place of Balsaloc to glue the fabric down to the airframe. Mod Podge is a water based sealer, glue & finish. Essentially the same stuff as Balsaloc but much much cheaper.

Even cheaper is perfectly normal PVA adhesive. Heat activated too.
