Onslaught's a good thought as well. Either way works.
Question: How are you (if at all) getting round getting round the scraping issue from the little nubs on the wings and tail? Personally I'm filing off mine, but I'm curious as to how others are doing it.
The nubs on the inside of the wings I've left alone. They don't seem to bother the paint all that much. The ones on the tail/rudder/fins tend to do some damage, so I just sanded those all the way down. I have to align them by hand, but since I tend to lean them back to make better 'heels' in bot mode, that's not such a big deal.
