weight of aluminum skin vs. fabric

Postby Ericklee » Thu Jun 07, 2018 1:14 pm

Does anybody know the weight of aircraft aluminum (skin) vs. the weight of medium grade ceconite after sealing it? I'm considering whether to skin the doors and surrounding all in fabric, or aluminum, both of which I have adequate supply. My lean is toward fabric everywhere I can on my Buttercup.
