You guys may already know about this detail, but thought I'd mention it anyway. My early Alpina build instructions recommend sanding away much of the veneer from the tail surfaces. Also mentioned is sanding the veneer thinner towards the wing tips, all to help shave off weight.
I believe carefully applied glass will weigh approx to film, but as already mentioned, paint will really rack up the grams.
