Default Need CG Information Please

I just acquired this AWESOME little P-47 but I have no idea who the manufacturer is.

WS = 54"
Length = 45"
Pneumatic retracts including tailwheel
Fuse is wood
Wing is foam covered with balsa
Everything is covered with fiberglass
Flaps

This is a VERY old plane and is super cool. I need to get an engine for it but I'm not really sure what size engine to go with at this point. I do want to go with a 4 stroke for sure. The previous owner didn't know much about either.

Any help would be appreciated

I'm thinking this might be a Marks Model JEMCO kit, the box label says 54" and Jemco kits had balsa covered foam wing cores.

a few build pics here Jemco P-47 Razorback

Yes, That is the kit I have. This is one of the coolest kits I have seen. The detail of a plane this size is awesome! Thanks

Is that lead hanging from the motor mount? If so that seems like a lot of weight for the size of the plane. I'd fear the plane might become a display model if too heavy.

Yes it is. The previous owner must have done that. I'm looking also for someone who can tell me where the CG is on this plane. I don't have drawings or info.
