Nice work, Shawn.

So I got my Champ last week.
At last.
Time to get busy.

Already done:
decals removed (and a lot of paint )
bigger main and tail wheel with "chrome" hub caps
oleo dampers
wing struts (removable for some reason)

I didn't want it to get to heavy and I think I didn't do to bad:
wing struts, not including the carbon tubes glued to the fuse and wings: 1.4 gramm per side
complete main gear, incl. wheels and "oleos": 5.8 gr
tail wheel: 0.3 gr

yet to come:
exhausts
custom waterslide decals
rudder struts
outlines (cowl, door, etc.)

Thanks to everyone in this thread for crazy ideas and useful tips!
