3 Feb 08 - I bought this model from Revolution Models as I liked the lines.  It is a fairly small model, with a tiny fuselage, but the equipment fitted without much effort.  The fuselage joins were extremely large giving great strength, but a lot of weight (relative) in the tail boom.  This meant that 50 g (1 oz.) of lead had to be added to the nose to get the CofG position where I wanted.  Speaking of which the instructions make no mention of the CofG position, in fact they have to be the worst instructions I have ever seen.
