 Finished !

 The mass balances are from small diameter brass tube squashed and 5 minute epoxy . The epoxy is wrapped around the brass with a bit of scrap balsa Like fairy floss I guess.
 Not all the same size but they'll do for me.

 Radio antenna from EZ line.

 Cheers

Gordon - A great looking model to bring 2016 to a close. The bright colours, decals and the engine detail bring the model to life. Looking forward to seeing your 2017 endeavors.
