Weight Breakdown of Buzrd

Hello Ian,
I have followed this thread with interest .You have certainly acheived your initial objectives and have finished up with a lightweight,competitive model which doesn't cost an arm and a leg.
I am thinking of adopting some of the principles and components you have used to make a fuselage for my Pike Perfect wings; the idea being to achieve a weight significantly below that of of my current model,which is well over 2Kg.
To see if this is feasible I wonder if you could provide a bit more detail on the weight breakdown of your model.In particular, do you have the weight of the fuselage(complete with all necessary kit apart from the wings) and the weight of the tailset.
As I know the weight of my Pike wings I should be able to get a good idea of what total weight is possible.

Thanks in advance,
