Wow, this looks really nice!

What is the mass of the shroud (ascent stage) with nose cone? And mass of the cylindrical lower body (no legs or anything else). I do not mean the whole model, but the masses of the pieces.

I already had planned to build a Mars Lander this winter. Actually got a Semroc/eRockets kit, started on the paper shroud but it was lopsided (my fault) and for various reasons I was seriously thinking about having a wooden pattern made to vac-form the shroud (sacrificing the embossed detail). This seems MUCH better.
