    I used to laminate with a single piece, tip to tip. Aside from the difficulty of doing so, I started considering that this warps the wings more than if you do it in sections.

    That makes a lot of sense. I think I might actually pull this sorry excuse of a laminating job off and redo it. If I need to repaint as a result, so be it. Better in the long run. Or perhaps, just use it as is for this season and fix it over the fall/winter.

    I think I have the hang of it now! Bought a new VAS Wyvern that's around 85% complete now. Thanks for the tips guys!

    Thanks brother! I really appreciate it. No doubt, laminating in sections is a whole world better than trying to cover the bird in one shot.
