Question World Models 30% Stearman balancing

Has anyone assembled one of the World Models 30% Stearmans? I am wondering about the balance point in the manual. Plans call for a 100cc engine. I am using a DLE 120 and the plane seems extremely tail heavy. Bit difficult to balance as the plane is so big. When it warms up, I will take it to a friend's garage and we'll give it another try. Just looking for some input from anyone with experience.

Thanks

I received this response (very quickly) from World Models. I/m gonna give it a try this weekend or next.

Some customers also reported the CG issue, please move the CG about 225mm
(instead of 210mm) behind the leading edge of the upper wing.
