when you cut the new stuff, make it longer than you need it toward the back, cut the side fuse pieces long enough to use 3 or 4 inches ( or more) of the main wing slot (even though you are going to cut that part off of the new pieces later). This alligns the nose section perfectly in line with the rest of the existing plane.

Cut the fuse somewhat straight where you are going to join the new pieces first, then slide the new ones on over the wing, pressing it onto the old fuse straight cut, then trace a perfect matching trace/cut line on the new piece one side at a time. Makes a really good fit.!

If you already knew this, maybe someone else reading this didnt.
