That holds the two posts in that the tank mounts too. You should have two brackets that screw to the tank and bolt to those posts.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I don't think you will need to add any weight on the nose with this setup.

Is the base color and patterns anything scale like or just a best guess and that looks about right?
Any three views that are close to matching what the model looks like.
I have Sierra retracts and a GT-80 to provide power.
The white 190 was at several flyins and looked great in person!

I'm finally going to start to assemble my Butcher Bird and Im reviewing this thread in its entirety. Anybody that has a year of flying this airplane have anything to add about where things need improvement?

What engine? That seems like a lot. 10 Mins at full throttle is how i determine tank size.
