It is a useful skill to be able to figure out the CG by yourself. There are many examples of the factory CG of kits being too far forward.
A Google search comes back with quite a lot of information.
To transfer the dimensions of the model in question to butcher paper or the work table, it is handy to have a carpenters' square and some long straight edges. The layout lines for a .10 Shrike wing panel would only need a little more than 2 foot square of space.
Once you find the MAC of the wing panel, 25% back from the leading edge of the MAC line is just a starting point. Different pilots will have their own ideas of what is ideal.

The plans show 4 3/4" back from LE at the fuse.

Here is the easiest way I have found to determine the C/G for a model.
