Paw 60 diesel for CG

Geoff you must have nice balsa. Your 112 percent playboy,Thunder Tiger 46 balance at 58 percent weight at 2lb 13 oz, straight up. My balsa is not too good and my model is probably about three times the weight of yours!
I just took my Play Boy fuselage down, tail (rudder, fin, stab, elevator) off and weighed it bare, no motor or gear. Its about 5 lb. In the engine bay area you can see the extra lead weight. Adding either a TT diesel or the MVVS .40 does not bring the bare fuse up to the CG. Adding the PAW 60, just about on CG, but still less the tail (200 + g). The PAW 60 is rather heavy.
