Well, getting settled in/ a covered wing, now to move to finishing;
I'll do this the Bill Kubiak way--
1) start with computed Center of Gravity location pic1

2) obtain total "empty" airframe C. G. pic2

3) using moment arm calculations, establish locations for components with moment arm residing @ Center of Gravity (Finished) X total weight for moment arm needed.
4) pay no attention tothe man behind the curtain! this is atrialrun to locate what parts of fuse tops can be permanent, and finding access locations!

5) First run at Spreadsheet- will edit for proper format/ info
6) these are my firstdigital photos with an eternalfilm can!
