Thank you....they are a little heavy, but maybe not...I judge everything like a rubber build! I haven't weighed them, but something close to 600 gm Tongue
I made them somewhat strong, as this plane will be swapped around...gotta withstand sometime sharing rides in the car with children Roll Eyes

Wing is almost done...that is, built but not finished with covering...just a few hours needed...then back to my Hudson bomber  Cheesy
Build will be here and at RC groups....a fellow there just finished a similar Brit bomber....he asked for me to post the build..

danged good idea!

if you can't find a busted motor...
and I suggest evl-waterinlet...
if you have a wood lathe you can make a cylinder
and fill it just right with steel or lead shot.
:--D  for that authentic look you can make a cyl head
to have access to the weights.

That's a creative way to make it nostalgic and hide weight as well!
