Hi Douglas:

True.  However, given that the underside must be filled on this model with 
something like Milliput, the weight increases a fair amount.  I try not to 
drop it regardless:).  The metal engine also adds to the weight - I think 
that's an Aeroclub piece.

On the progress front, I did decide to rob the bits from the Eduard Albatros 
D.Va - it has a very nice control stick and rudder thing.  I may also use 
the plastic wheels from the same kit after I check they're the right size 
etc.  It's a lot easier for me to use plastic than either resin or metal. So 
last night, I glued on the rudder and control stick, plus the cube-shaped 
thing (Fuel tank?) that the seat is mounted on.  Now I need to make the 
instrument panel - not sure if it actually had one though.   Hmm...
