I used West 105/206 epoxy to coat most of the wood parts, no varnish, urethane, boat or otherwise. Helps pre-coating the insides of the parts before glueing them on. You don't need to mask.
Happy landings

I have my tail feathers almost done and am thinking i should varnish them now so they are protected while i continue building, what varnish should i use will the minwax from menards work or is there a brand that works the best?

For a variety of reasons, I am in the process of selling my full-scale Piet project, and am planning on starting on a Ragwing version, so I’ll be interested in following your progress. I will probably make the Heath Parasol version, just because I like the lines of the tail feathers and wings. Roughly half of the Ragwing designs are essentially the same plane with variations on empennage lines, outer wing shape and wing attachment. I will probably build it to register as a LSA so that i don’t have to be excessively concerned about weight (also, my life insurance policy specifically excludes death by ultralight accident, but it’s OK if i die in a certificated, registered aircraft). I only weigh 135 lbs. so a little extra weight in the aircraft for instruments, brakes, etc. is no big deal.

Kip

I have the plans for both the Heath and the Ultra-piet

I went with the piet for both the pietenpol look and because i think it looks a little sturdier, there's a little more plywood in it

the heath does look easier to build though,

either way keep in touch i'd love to hear how the build goes and how it flies
