Hi all, no not sex!
Has anyone experience of using unprotected (aginst uv) Ceconite on an aeroplane. Reason is a few people on my Flitzer builder group want to use Lozenge Ceconite which is not UV coated. Can it be without harming the pattern or causing it to bloom etc, I believe the lifespan is real short otherwise. Any suggestions on what to do or why would be useful.
Cheers, John :)
