Maxford Gee Bee Y

If anyone is still flying one of these could I trouble you for a measurement? I'm looking for the distance between the prop mounting surface and the firewall.

I recently purchased a used Maxford USA Gee Bee Y (version 1.1) and might be able to help if you have the same version (they are up to 2.0 or 2.1). The firewall/engine box arrange changed between versions, according to their website and instructions. Let me know if you still need the info. This is a great looking flying plane. Is there a thread for it on RCG? I could not find one.

I picked one of these up on sale last year, haven't built it yet. Would love to see a thread with motor, battery, servo opinions. They're on sale again at a great price:
