Does anyone know what amount of nose weight I will need to stop the Academy B-24 from being a tail sitter?
I was surprised there was no suggestion on the instructions.

I'm assuming that the Academy B.24? and the (ancient) Revell B.24D are the same scale (72) size and shape. I used a Terry Dean solid lead nose weight in my Revell B.24D, and it was seriously insufficient. Even 8 x 1/2" (12mm) spherical lead fishing sinkers (2 per engine nacelle) didn't help much.
So the answer is - probably more than you can pack into the forward part of the fuselage.
Best of luck with your build. George, out.................
