When looking at sets in the catalog the item info includes weight. Is this weight
of the model alone, once constructed or the full and complete set including packaging
and instructions?

Eg for the UCS B-Wing - Weight is stated as 2796g. What does this refer to exactly?

Cheers

BTW - I did do a quick search before asking this, but was overwhelmed with info
that had nothing to do with this question!

These weights are intended to refer to a factory-sealed set. The weight includes
the outer packaging (meaning the box) and all contents therein.

If you click on the Instructions Entry tab for that set, you'll see that
the three instructions booklets combined weigh 337 grams. The empty box itself
is reported to weigh 576 grams (although I wonder a bit about that weight).

Many thanks for your reply.

BTW I just picked that set because it was one of my fave SW ships/sets
