      Two questions regarding Retro Wings (all resin) 1/200 complete DC-9 kits:

      1) Is the resin in which these kits are molded of the non-porous type resin ala present day Authentic Airliners and F-RSIN kits? (vs resin kits of bygone days that would immediately take on the appearance of a sponge when sanded)

      2) Is it necessary to add weight to the forward fuselage to prevent 'tail-sitter syndrome?'

      Thank you.
