How can this model stand without nose wheel nor tail wheel?
Well, my first project was dual tandem wheels, like on the Bréguet 760 (thanks to "Le Trait d'Union" magazine):

Three modelling steps:
1- As I had no hands enough to hold the model and adjust the spats at the center of gravity... I glued them approximately where I could with available room, than (after drying) the model fell on its tail: spats too much in front...
2- I glued the rear wheels hoping this would stand. After drying I removed the support and... the model fell on its tail again, breaking away the port rear wheel...
3- To support the rear of the port spat more efficiently, I took a mysterious little part of the Karas kit (support of machine gun?), like a 4-leg spider... Non rolling but it kept the model standing. Success. (Sigh of relief)
