Subject: weight of covered bug fuse and tail
I just finished my latest bug. I colored it with red food color mixed with 99% isopropyl and was going to poly it, but decided to cover it with trans red ultracote lite instead. I was suprised how much weight the cover added: 2.5 grams. I could have estimated the weight first but, oh well. Will I rip it off,heck no, its my best looking bug yet. The trans red combined with the dark red under cote made it come out the coolest looking, deepest blood red. It looks like red lacquer. Rob
