Fitting the Engine Cowling

I really want to cover the engine so I decided to skip ahead to fitting the engine cowling, which is part of the finishing kit. The instructions ask you to perform a bit of light sanding to get the upper and lower halves to line up nicely. I used a set of files and a Dremel grinding wheel to accomplish the task.

One error I noted in the instructions: they ask you to drill 2.5mm pilot holes along the seam at a pitch of 28.4mm, that should be 284mm!
