Here we’ve glassed the cowling together at the previous cut line, and glassed where we (accidentally) made the wing holes too big. It’s really almost impossible not to make the whole too big without the template, since the cowling will not go inside of the wings to allow you to mark it. So, you end up cutting a bit, trying it, rinse, repeat…. Here we’ve glued tongue depressors inside the cowling, and duct taped a cardboard form seal the overly large openings.
