I am also building a Balsacraft Blenheim, the fuse and tail feathers are finished. I will also be using a "Real "(Clear) canopy and gun turret that I obtained from a fellow in England.(Brian Leadley)He also sent me pics of his and a sketch how to modify the fuse so that you don't have to remove the wing to replace the nicad pack. Great help!
I built my tail surfaces with scale outlines and fabric covered the elevators and rudder, replacing the solid wood for ribs.
My dilemma now is that I can't decide what motors to use

Most use stock Speed 600's with good success, but I am considering Speed 480 Race's with inline gearboxes. They are about 3 times the price of 600's but are lighter and draw less current, (longer flight times) but will they give me enough power to fly it? I don't want to use large folding props on it either, maybe fixed 3 bades. Any suggestions?

P.S. If anyone wants to write to Brian about the canopy, heres his e-mail address:
