The front and rear curved sections of our 66 scotty are masonite and the middle ceiling section was plywood. From restoration pictures I,ve seen ,I believe most of the older scottys were built this way. If I had to replace the curved sections I would go with the bendable birch too, although alot of the restorations I've seen have stuck with the original masonite. Once it's sealed up properly, it shouldn't be a problem.

Ross - is this bendable birch surface ready to sand and shellac? This sounds like just what we need to redo the front rounded panels of our Siesta. We had a lot of trouble getting that curve when we redid the back end without it bowing in the middle. Thanks!
I haven't personally used the Plywood Company brand, but from what I read....yes, with some light sanding, it is ready to finish. Just remember, this brand only bends the 4' width, NOT the 8' length, hence 8' x 4'. Which means you will have a seam.
