From laser sheet S5, remove the two engine hatch stops, 3HS, and 5HS. They will be fit in between the deck engine frames and flush with the bottom of frame 3 for 3HS, and flush with the bottom of frame 5 for 3HS.

Now take the engine hatch frame work and place it in the hatch bay opening. From balsa scrap, make small wedges and wedge the hatch in the opening with equal spacing all the way around. Once wedge in, tack glue the wedges to the hatch and the hatch frame with thin CA glue. JUST TACK GLUE enough to hold the hatch in position so it can be sanded true with the deck. It will have to be cut out later easily later in the build.

The rear hatch is wedged in position and tacked glued in the same manner as the engine hatch for sanding.
