I have a plane built from If anyone has any info regarding the following letter to mfg...please chime in.

Hi George,
I purchased some parts and made a plane and was wondering if you might be able to help me determine the CG.
I used a Eppler 197 mid sweep wing.
The fuse parts have not been cut in length but the tail was shaped and reduced.
1 center fuse/1 solid nose/1 motor mount
section/motor mount and cowling.
The all up weight including battery is 32 oz.
length 37.5"
leading edge7.5" back from cowling
trailing edge 19.75 forward of tail
elev and rear stab 18.5 X 6"
Not sure if any of this helps but any help is good.
I am thinking between 3.5 and 4 " back at root???
Thank You,
