Thanks Tom and Rubio. The info is very helpful. I am going to try 1 layer of 3.2oz. for a smoother external finish and 1 layer of 8oz. on the inside to add a little strength. I think this may do it and make it on the lighter side. I guess that you just have to do do a few test runs until you get the right combo for the kind and size of plane you are building. Thanks again.

Fabio, maybe do the first fuse in two halves. Blue tape it together for a trial fit and if it is too flexible, you could reinforce where you need to and still have a useable fuse after you seam it.

Ok I'm not sayin, I'm just sayin, Monday Norco might be a fun light day. Not huge winds but may be fun.

FINALLY got around to finishing my second Zulu! (My first one was lost to a midair with a Spitfire)

Considerably lighter than my first, but it looks like I'm still going to need at least 1.5oz to balance the CG right. Meaning I won't be quite as light as if like, but I think overall it'll still be lighter than my first.

Also; the marking on the right wing is the "Hunter" insignia from the video game "Destiny", for those that care.
