Ok, update for this afternoon:
profile and top down on the altered skins. I don't like them.
Moreover, I'm liking Franz Joseph less and less. lol.
The alteration attempts on the skins have essentially failed.
Denting is apparent in the aft section in multiple places. And the angles of the curves along the back are so restrictive as to make scaling and minor alterations impractical. It took me weeks early on to get the skins ironed out, clean and dent free. So, I don't know how long this is going to take. When I did it the first time, I there was a lot that I didn't know about max. So, cross your fingers.
