Default Weeks Solution X Biplane

I purchased a used biplane, approximately 70-72" wingspan, that I was told may be a Weeks Solution X. It was just the air frame and a few servos so I need to add an engine and fuel system.
Does anyone know what fuel tank should be in there? I'm also thinking of putting a G62 on it for power. Also, if I add a smoke system, what tank would you recommend along with the fuel tank? Thanks for reading.

I can't say about the tanks, but I can tell you my friend had a Weeks Solution with the G62 (E Ignition) in it and it flew awesome, his was built from scratch, you can see it in my link..

You probably need 20-24 oz of fuel in a G62. A lot of that depends on how much flight time you want vs. how much takeoff weight you are willing to deal with. Space may also be a concern.
