I'm trying to find out what is an average ready to fly weight for the Jack Stafford B-24 kit. Anyone have one?

Thanks

By the way I just installed the retactable belly turret after all these years. It adds one more thing to do during flight.
My bomb doors do not work, but one little screw and I can slide the doors out. To make them work I have always thought about using thin basswood strips with a fine silk backing for veenier style roll up doors with the mechanism in the kit.
