Good Evening. All the planes I have flown since I restarted a couple years ago have been ARFs, but now I have decided to see how finishing a partially built plane would work out for me. I bought one at a swap meet a couple months ago. The fuselage is partially built, though I have to fabricate the tail and rudder (no problem here). The wing has been built up (all wood), but the center joint needs to be strengthened with fiberglass. I have never done this before, so I purchased some 5 oz. fiberglass cloth, which I will presumably have to cut into strips to wrap around the center joint, and some Great Planes Pro Finishing Resin. Unfortunately, I haven't seen anything lately about techniques for this type of fiberglassing. For example, is the 5 oz. cloth appropriate for a center joint? How many layers of fiberglass do I need for this? What is meant by "feathering" the glass? Any advice or links regarding fiberglassing the joint would be appreciated.
