Looking good Colonel. Yes, I use gloss varnish, but your satin should give a pleasant enough finish, especially if you put the tissue on shiny side out.

I think your weight estimate is probably about right; when I did the KK Bantam wing it added 20 grams, but that included extra tissue trim panels on the tips and two logos and trim lines cut from Solartrim (which is heavy), so I reckon the mylar/tissue and varnish probably added 10 grams which equates to about 6 grams per square foot of area.
