For me, the key to building light is to use foam. I use both Depron, beaded styrofoam and pink/blue foam. Pink/blue foam is easy to carve and sand and is also easily cut into sheets as thin as 1mm. I use a foam friendly contact adhesive for most of the glueing (UHU Por or Bison).

I just got a precision scale and the model in the "sub ounce model" thread has an AUW of only 24 grams. Only the struts are balsa.
