Default 1/48 Hase 'Cat.....

First one Ive built. Does it need nose weight? Building this one with the wings spread.

Thanks!

How much do you put in? If I am going to, I don't want to not put enough. I am using old tire/wheel weights. Thanks!

I actually use the leftover metal wheels that come with the kit and wrap them in Milliput. Then I stuff the whole thing in the nose and CA it in when the Milliput dries. I don't exactly know how much weight it is but it does the trick

I've built quite a few of them and never needed nose weight. It's actually front heavy enough that it doesn't need it.

That's a good idea, I have a few of those laying around!

Thank you! I kind of thought so, but I just wanted to make sure before the nose went on!
