Default 1/4 Scale MAN Boeing P-26A Peashooter build

Hello all,
This is my first time posting as I have not had much to say until now. I just acquired a partially built Peashooter that I am very excited about and would love any information from those of you that have experience with this plane or similar. I do have most of the plan pieces for the airplane but am having trouble finding the cg point for it. Can anyone help me there. I am also looking for the full MAN article on this airplane as I only have a few bits and pieces of it. I am going to post some pictures of the plane as it sits right now and plan to update as I go along. It is going to be a long winter here in Washington state and hope to have it ready for next year flying season.
Thanks in advance.

Dennis

Man I envy you... That looks like a really cool project !

There are better experts on this than me... but on a straight wing like that your CG will be between 28-33 % of the wing chord.. I think I have that right ...Someone will hopefully be along with info from the plans.

Thanks!! Yes I almost envy myself ha ha.... It is very cool it has split flaps, dual aileron servos, dual elevator servos, and a pull pull rudder. This guy who built it this far was a real craftsman and makes my job so much easier. Everything was done right to this point and it is going to be fun to finish and fly! Thank you for the reply!

Very cool, there are a couple of those about that size that show up at the Owatonna Minnesota warbird flyin . They weren't there every year,but I have seen them there multiple times. If you search for that event, you may find pictures of them. I think one was the typical blue scheme, and the other a green version. Both were Immaculate..
