Hello! I'm looking to use Sig Koverall. I know Solartex is the king of fabric and all that, but I would like to explore this product. Major Stumbling Block: I live in a flat. Dope has a nostalgic aroma, but I think my Missus and fellow tenants do not share that view.
The ultimate goal is a reasonably fuel resistant, durable and nice looking finish. Is Deluxe Materials Eze-kote a viable alternative? Any suggestions?

I used Koverall on 1/4 scale motor glider(electric) and used Eze-kote cover-grip to stick it to the airframe and Eze-Kote to seal it. Be aware that you will probably need to apply at least 3 coats to seal it to make it airtight before applying any paint.

I recently used Wilko's water based varnish on the tissue covered fuselage of my Amigo glider. Worked fine, no odour, a fraction of the price of Eze-dope & Eze-kote.

I've used Ronseal water-based (I had some already - Wilko's is just as good). Also used it on Koverall on a cowl instead of fibreglass (hadn't got any to hand). Lots of coats needed to fill the weave, but results are smooth and tough.

Thanks for all the input. Quick question: Could I use a light shot of primer filler and a quick scuff of very fine(320-400 grit) sandpaper after the second or even first coat? Help fill the weave in a bit faster? Just wondering.Hey Norm, what kind of plane is that? Gamecock? It looks more like a radial engined Sopwith Dolphin.
