John, could I politely and everso slightly disagree...
The Quaker Flash and the Flying Quaker have just about the longest nose of all old timer aircraft. Normally you shouldn't need nose weight or even a heavy engine. My own QF has a glow FR Ohlsson .23 in the nose, which is very light, and the RC gear is still evenly spread through the cabin area...
Also, I'm a lifelong diesel lover, but I'd still prefer a gentle four-stroke in a plane like a Quaker.
