Thank you for a truly cool design!!

good spot... the 2 and 9/16" width of the top and bottom panels is a deliberate "oversize"
the nominal width of the fuselage is 2 and 1/2" but with variances in material thickness and the accuracy with which the 2" wide fuselage formers and servo tray have been cut will all effect the final width of the fus.
so i deliberately designed the panels slightly oversize so you can....

"trim to fit on final assembly"

saves wasting that 2.1/2" wide strip you just cut that is slightly undersize
