Nose

Chad,

I'm with you and everyone else that has said that no one will be bothered by the longer nose. It's more of a wieght thing--I don't want to add un-neccessary wieght.

Spitfire Balance

I didn't realize the difference in the external/internal armor. I did know about the radiator/coolers though and all I saw in my kit was balsa so I think it is up to me to carve/build them anyway.

Chipmunk
