Extending the Spacing Between Individual Markings

(I must have made an error when drawing up the kill markings in Illustrator. They were not nearly long enough - meaning they were not spaced out enough so that they would start and end in the right place on the fuse. If you look at the first photo below of the real plane, you'll see that the first marking is forward of the panel line of the long vertical panel behind the engine, and the last marking ends at the edge of the 'F'. Mine were 55mm short! So I measured everything up, and extended the gap between each marking by 4mm. This gave me roughly the extra length I required while at the same time not making the markings too spaced out. The first marking is is still not far enough forward but a good enough compromise. Things like this show you that everything is not perfectly scale, and there are a lot of variables with panel lines etc that all add up in the end.)

I did'nt like to say anything
