Default G-26 model fit

I have a new Zenoah G-26 which I was going to use on my 109 in Taylorcraft on floats. Needless to say the G-26 was inadiquate for this setup so I swapped it out for a 35cc DLE. Now I have a brand new engine collecting dust on a shelf. I have been looking at the 88in wing span Balsa USA Sopwith Camel. The kit calls for an engine size 25-30cc which the G-26 is almost perfect. My problem is I don't know if the G26 will fit properly inside the cowel of this kit, anyone out there built one of these kits and would anyone know if the G-26 would fit? It's would be a big problem if I bought this particular kit and the engine wouldn't fit, any adice?

I would not recommend the Balsa USA Camel for the G-26. It would probably fly it but very well. I have the Balsa USA 1/4 scale Sopwith Pup and the G-26 flys it very well. The 1/4 scale Pup is fairly easy to build and is a really great flying airplane. It is a great way to get into the WW I Dawn Patrol events. This is my 1/4 scale Pup, it is on it 8th flying season.
