RTF at present without paint is 7.2 oz psf
Good technique -- I did a few models which were covered in silkspan and painted with Titebond- stif and strong - easy to do
I now have a box of carbon bits n pieces - rods /strips etc.- so I just stick those in the surface using a sharp knife to install.
for my teeny tiny models - lighter .
