I've been hoping to find a brick of lead in the tail... But no luck yet. I'm almost embarrassed to say how heavy it is! I weighed it on some borrowed car scales. 1168 total. 452 left main, 445 right, and 271 on the nose. The plane has at least 3 layers of paint on the exterior, and the inside of all the structures were painted heavily by the builder. Maybe someone has some data about cg before and after paint?
