1.87 oz lightweight fabric recommended for covering ultralight aircraft. This fabric will be unstamped. It is not approved for certified aircraft except on plywood surface. 72" Width. Priced and sold by the yard.
I am using this material to cover vintage model airplanes and vintage model sailplanes. I finish with nitrate and butyrate dopes. Since I am building some pretty large sailplanes I wanted fabric in long enough lengths to cover the span of the wings without having to piece fabric together. I am happy with this product!
