Help!

need mathematics people asap for centerline tank and bombs for scale


hi guys
i`m scaling out an ancient global models p-47 razorback 40 - 60 ? 55 " w.s and 46" length
i`m scaling this out big time, w kb .46 and 3 bladed prop
one of the things i want to include is a center line drop tank, and 500 lb bombs on wing pylons
my question is , what size do i make the tank and bombs. they will be carved out of soft balsa
i`m not very good at this type of equation, and hope a brainiac can help me out

We need to know your model's fuselage length and wingspan
The 500 lb bomb will be simple to figure.

Center line drop tanks were of various sizes, shapes, and construction.
75-200 gallon tanks
aluminum and paper tanks.

oops. i`m bad !!!!!!!!!!!!! this is the 40-60 sixe i guess,


sorry for omitting that.. vital info do not have original box for specs, and manual says nothing about specs the wingspan is 56", and fuse length is about 46". w/ cowl on.
i know longer posses original box, so these specifications taken w/ tape measure
my guess is it will weigh in at about 7-9 lbs ? using a k & b .46 using a pitts muffler, and 3 bladed 10x7 prop
{ which i might have screwed up on } . k b is a poor man`s 4 stroke, so a 3 blader should be o.k.
any mistakes i`m making, pleas chime in as this is my first REAL scale project
thanks for all your help and future advice
god bless
