Hi Chris. If you go back and look at my templates, they were done in halves. In other words the Fuselage sections were only drawn as a half, so I scribed a crossed set of lines for the middle, then laid the pattern on one side, flipped it over for the other.

Now all I had to do was draw a line around the circumfrance of the foam, align the lines on the template (I used top and bottom lines) set the pins to hold, and cut.

If that does not make sense, re-post and I'll stage a photo to show what I mean. I'm sort of too wordy sometimes and it may be hard to follow my explinations.
