I agree. But using slices like that does have some issues. I have done it twice, first time , as you described, cut plastic model in slices. 2nd time, just recently for my F86F build, I had used cross section views. On the plastic model, it is critical to have every thing perfectly straight and level, or sections will be distorted when you cut them. This last time, check my build thread, I used as said, cross sections, printed them out, transfer them to formica material ( cut sections with hot wire). To get the perfect or even acceptable, fuse that you hope to, IF everything is not perfectly square, level, you have little chance. Even the templates have to be symetrical, if not lopsided fuse. It can be done, if you want to take the time.
