Cowling modification

Simply more test fitting, sanding, checking primed parts, and priming.

The centerpiece of my work today was a cowling modification.

As can be seen in this picture, there are two plastic posts on either side of the gearbox that hold this cowling component in place. I find them to be entirely unrealistic, so I'm removed them.

Here is the engine and gearbox combo, puttied and sanded, ready to prime. Notice the filled in holes where this pins used to mount.
