Thanks for the suggestions! Actually, that IS the plane I'm modeling. The "scoops" you see on the top by the spinner are gun ports. I've considered opening them up on mine at the expense of losing the scale guns. As well, I've looked at the cooling spinners. An excellent and intriguing design. This is a big plane however and the spinner on my plane is over 5 inches across. I haven't seen one that big. I'm thinking on going with opening some small intake slots on the upper area toward the sides (say around 1/4 to 1/2 inch wide by maybe an inch long) and then opening up a couple more about two to three times that big on the bottom. Should be minimally noticeable, especially if I open them up right near the gun ports. Thanks again for all the excellent suggestions! Dave
