Inside cabin exposed fabric

Posted: Monday, July 28, 2014 3:52 AM Quote
I have covered my DH60 Gipsy a Moth fuselage and like many vintage aircraft, it has the cabin with exposed fabric to deal with.
I am aware of the special linen coloured ecobond procedure.
My question: is there any reason why I could not do a similar procedure using the standard green ecobond?
The colour of the ecobond is similar to the nitrate dope used in vintage aeroplanes and I would be happy with that colour rather than linen color.

You can use the green EkoBond to get the same effect

Thanks Jason. I have gone ahead and used the green EkoBond instead of the linen coloured EkoBond.
I probably should have sealed the green glue with something (as per the Linen instructions) but instead went straight into the grey EkoFil.
The grey leaches through the green and looks patchy but will be acceptable when the other coats are applied.
