Henschel HS-132 - Part 9

Okay.  Now it's time to work on the BMW003 engine:

As with the fuselage, I'll be using the KNIFE tool to erase segments in key places, taking care to preserve the overall shape of the engine.

So far so good.

For the engine farings, another boolean operation: Faring - (BMW003 + Fuselage).

What a mess!  I'll need to clean this up.  The goal would be to minimize the number of pieces needed to build the engine faring.  I'll use the trusty Knife tool to remove excess edges until I'm left with the minimum amount needed to produce the shape outlined by the red dashed lines on the image above.

And here we go.  In theory, the unfold operation for this part should produce only 3 pieces.
