how much distance is added to the original cast? .. for the fuselage?,, because as I see there is a hole .. is just straight pass without making the hole near the nose, or measures to further amend it.

thanks friend.
No hole!
Hole is for engine!
If you like, add 15mm to nose of fuselage.
No more amends!

Hey Fuzzy B
You were in the wrong place...
You should have been at MIG alley!

Hello Juan,
It may be any wood, just to hold down the LE.
LE= Leading Edge
TE= Trailing Edge.
