Where did you put your fuel tank?

It has steerable nose gear, 4 channel and is simply a lot of fun. Electrics dont have the presence of the Norvel, the sound and smell of fuel and smoke is a great extra dimension. I am most amazed by how well the norvel (my first) idles, it has only has 3 2 oz tanks through it and with 25% nitro morgon power fuel it behaves as good as an os 40 already - very impressive engine. such a pity it is hard to get spares. I cant even get a spare plug, so am being mega cautious with the engine. The plane is very strong it could easily handle a 074.
I'm mounting a Norvel in a COX Cessna and am interested in where you mounted your fuel tank. Nice looking Beech indeed.
