Wendy Continues...STEP 3: Making Flite-Metal Panels:  

Since my fuselage surface is not completely flat I had to create Flite-Metal covered panels, which i could swirl while they were lying completely flat. I took my bottom and side templates and laid them on Evergreen plastic styrene sheet (white, .010 thickness). I traced template panel shape onto the styrene sheet then cut panel free.

Note: Mark the side of the Styrene panel that you are going to apply the Flite-Metal onto, so panel does not end up being covered on the wrong side.
