Hmmmm your shooting for under 16ozs if I do my conversion correctly.

I hope you can make it. What will your painting method be?

Mixing lightweight spackle and sanding down to 600 gave me a glass like surface on my Spit. Had I glassed over it the only thing you would have seen is the glass itself. On some older WWI kits I like this look, however on the Spit it would not have looked right.

Figured I would try it without. Time will tell if I like it this way. I do know the ďnakedĒ GWS Zero Iím building is coming in very light. Thatís always a good thing!

Didnít notice if you glassed both sides of the wing or elevator. On some thinner surfaces I have noticed only doing 1 side will warp that surface.

ďStockĒ gear meaning GWS 350? Iím interested as to what you have in mind.

Best of Luck

Tommy
