Progress continues with the Sierra Scale 1/72 Phönix.

Last night I sanded out the fuselage halves from the vacuform sheet. The 
kit's metal engine appears a little too wide to close the fuselage. Also, 
the fuselage opening is also a little too short to allow the engine's top 
part to poke through, so that needs to be opened up a bit too.  At first I 
thought I'd sanded the vac too much but the cockpit and observer's openings 
look correct, and the latter matches the size of the metal gun ring.  I will 
have to add a few slivers of plastic from the vac sheet to close the thing 
up - no big deal.  Half the fuselage is going to be made of Milliput anyhow 
because the lower wing is one piece and a huge "Hole" has to be filled where 
it sits under the fuselage.
