The nose gear bay rear bulkhead has a cutout to let airflow in over the ESC, and the nose gear bay cover piece also needs a hole cut ino that of course.
The cover is then pressed in and two small pieces of tape, fore and aft, keep it there fine.

The main gear bays have solid foam pieces to go into them too, so I cut a bevelled edge onto them, which allows it to get under the fragile stickers totally fine then. They are a tight fit and they won't need any tape or anything to keep them in.
(I probably should have cut an ARC into them, not an angled edge - for it to be even easier to fit them.)
Another idea I thought of AFTER was that you should cover the yellow sticker area that is over the wheel/retract bays (like where the '92' is) with celophane tape to make them much stronger before you try to feed the foam blanks in under those areas!
