Glass Cloth and resin can also be used to mold entire model parts, such as a whole airplane fuselage. Cowlings, wheel pants, and any other model parts that have a lot of compound curves are also especially suited to fiberglass construction. Fiberglass parts such as these will have an outstanding strength-to-weight ratio and excellent dimensional stability.
Lastly, many modelers like to use the ultra-light weight Glass Cloth as a covering material for their entire model, especially when an epoxy or enamel paint is going to be used. It's super strong and goes around compound corners with ease.
Like the name implies, Glass Cloth is made of actual glass! First, very fine filaments of pure glass are spun into yarn. This yarn is then woven into varying weights of cloth. Glass is one of the strongest textile fibers, having greater tensile strength than steel wire of the same diameter. Sig has Glass Cloth available in four different weights to suit all possible modeling applications. Chemically treated to enhance glue/resin adhesion. This is the finest grade Glass Cloth available, manufactured by the largest fiberglass producer in the U.S.
