Yeah, that makes sense, that's how I would attempt it, anyway. I do prefer the open canopy display without those nearly-impossible-to-fit-in crew. I wonder if filing down the two edges of the middle piece a smidge where they sit onto the fuselage would help—not sure if it has tiny tabs there that fit into slots of the fuselage or not... looks like it might. Would need to snip off those tabs and file the bottom edges down 1/32" or so? Might help. I haven't attempted this yet. Anybody wanna be the guinea pig?
