500 & 600 Fuselages

When istalling a fuselage on large scale heli's, such as an Align 500, 550e or 600, does the entire tail boom have to be removed to get the fuselage on ? Or do they make it so that the whole fuselage slides over the assembled airframe? how much disassembly of the heli is required to get a large scale fuselage onto a large scale heli..?:

Im thinking of installing a Funkey Jet Ranger Fuselage on a Align 550e Heli, if its not to involved.

Remove the skids, canopy, canopy mounts, tail boom brace, horizontal and vertical fins.

Then for most fuselages, remove the tail rotor assembly, slide Heli into the fuselage, and reinstall the tail rotor assembly.

Those are the basic steps, for something like the Hughes 500, AS-350 and Jet Ranger.

FYI: See www.scaleflying.com for more fuselage choices.
