    I am just beginning to build the WOH Seimens-Schuckert D-IV and I have some basic questions on thickness. I know that the answer to this question is already here somewhere, but I haven't yet been able to find it.
    I am in the U.S. and don't understand the thickness denotations used in Europe, for example 160 gm(-2). What is the U.S. equivalent to this measurement? Is there a good converter out there for those of us who are mathmatically challenged? Any help is greatly appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Gary

    P.S. - If anyone has building tips for WOH models in general, or specificly about this model, I would be happy to know them.

    WOW!!! The 110 Offset paper I'm using needs to be tripled to get above the .5mm that is recommended for some parts. No wonder my models are not very strong.

    Good question and great answers!
