I am cleaning out. Have discovered several new rolls of various Coverite
Can anyone tell me the difference?
Super Shrink Coverite -white
Super Coverite - white
Perma Gloss Coverite (blue, yellow, red)
and what should a full roll (unopened) of this be worth.
Super Coverite - is actually a fabric and does very well in simulating
fabric covered aircraft. Iron on using lots of heat. Needs to be painted
after application. Is the "only" stuff to use when building a scale fabric
Super Shrink - is more like silkspan in texture, lighter than Super
Coverite. Applies very much like monokote, although more heat is needed.
Needs to be painted after application.
Perma Gloss - is Super Coverite with a pre impregnated color. I am not sure

As with all things model airplane, if you can half of what you paid for it,
you're doing good. As I recollect, the rolls were available in varying
lengths up to 25 feet. Originally, the stuff was somewhat more expensive

Hobbies. I don't think they make Super Coverite any longer.
