1 inch ahead of the mains is where mine is set, slightly nose heavy but flies so well I have not done anything about it. all up weight is around 28-30 pounds with a P-70 for power and flies great.

all the fuel is way ahead of the CG but seems to have no effect on trim through the flight as with the flaps and speed brakes, zero trim change.

Thanks Kevin...i was going to set my cg at 11.5" from the LE back but your measurement is roughly 12" back. I will probably split the difference and go with 11.75".
I just finished this one and it weighs 22.5 lbs not including any ballast i might need. Power is a P-100.

mine is currently balanced level on the front edge of the gear door opening right on seam of the gear door and the wing. I plan on moving it back a little more as it does require a bunch of elevator on landing right at the flare. looks great by the way, wish mine were a little lighter, that one should go very well with the 100.
