Default Routing Antenna on Miss America P-51

Looking for suggestions: I am putting the final touches on the new Miss American from WM and not sure how to route the antenna....

Usually I would route the ant. wire out of the fuse just behind the trainling edge of the wing and to the tail wheel bracket utilizing the rubberband and control horn trick. But with the second shroud acting as the air scoop, there really isn't a quality possibility to do this and taking the wire out of the top of the fuse seems as though it will have to pass through a balsa runner....

What do you "51" pilots recommend????

Glue a tube inside the fuse, run the ant. down the tube
all the way. If the wire is longer than the fuse run it on out the bottom at the end of the fuse and let it hang.
I have 3 airplanes that way and never have had any signal trouble.
