3/4 oz. cloth is the normal weight. There are lots of how-to's on the R/C forums.
Much easier to look them up and read them rather than me trying to explain all the steps.
It's not that difficult but it can be messy. WBPU is easier to do and less messy but not as resistant to hangar rash.

I used 1oz fiberglass cloth from Ziroli products. I was able to buy a 20ft roll. Still got some left...

I agree with Martin, there a bunch of vids to watch. I recommend looking at a few and choose which method works well for you. It's a bit frustrating at time. Dont be afraid to ask us questions.

Looks like the bug is inspecting the panel lines :-)

Hmmm. I bought the plane mostly framed up. The builder said he followed the plans as far as offset goes. I never actually measured her......
