Hi Stuart,

For glassing, I calculated about 250gr/per m2 surface
(what I've seen when glassing my MIG15:

Note that with balsa, I expect more epoxy to be pulled into the wood. I would say about 25% more.

This is with 25gr/m2 gloth and 2 layers of epoxy.

So if you have a 20dm2 wingarea, the added weight would be = 20/100 * 2 * 250 = 100gr.

What is the added weight for what you mentionned "tissue, paint and clear varnish" ?
