I says in the instructions that the airplane design is rear heavy. Although the manual doesn't suggest adding nose weight, maybe there could be a way, or would you think that the resin makes the weight too much rear heavy to compensate with nose weight? I can imagine one could maybe drill holes in the resin at the front somewhere from inside the cockpit and add nose weight that way into the new cavities, but perhaps that wouldn't be enough I am thinking.

Thanks. It was a while ago that I built this one but I'm pretty sure I added a bit of weight under the cockpit insert (I may have had to drill out some resin to make a hole for it). Because the main wheels and front wheels fit pretty well I remember I could just press fit them and get a good idea of whether any weight was needed. Hope that helps and good luck with yours.
