Inside of Collect-Aire fuselage halves. On the left is the unmodified kit part (paint was added for contrast in other photos). On the right is the modified part which is accurate in profile. The cuts I made are easily visible, and the patch to correct the shape of the vertical stabilizer is prominent. Note that I considerably thinned the walls of the part.

Outside of Collect-Aire fuselage halves. On the right is the unmodified kit part. On the left is the modified part. Generally, the front part of the fuselage was too fat, and the windscreen too high and too far forward. This meant the cockpit and canopy were also too far forward. Notice the filled in auxiliary intake and the resized air brake well.
