That's a bummer about sitting on its tail, Mike, but it's looking pretty good all the same!

Mike how about using a metal rod for the propeller shaft? Or maybe some weight in the nose wheel well?

Thanks Gents! I am happy with how the build looks, just bummed about it sitting on it's tail.  

When I saw the two nuggets of weight in the box I thought KH mistakenly dropped a second one in the box, obviously that wasn't the case. After going back through the instructions, I found the step where I was supposed to install the weights. DOH! (edited from my initial post). 

 

Adding additional weight will require major surgery to the build, and I'm not going to go that route. I weighted the second nugget, and it's 31 grams. So, 62 grams of weight is needed to hold it down on it's front tire! I weighted out 31 grams of lead fishing weights, and there is no way I'm going to get it to fit. Making a stand is easier than cutting open the build. I'll chalk this up as lessoned learned for the next one I build.

 

Anyway, I'll be adding the finishing touches over the long Thanksgiving weekend. Need to finish up by 11/31, so I can get ready for the next GB, Color My World Blue.

 

Mike
