    Hit a major snag with the build....the lower right shoulder on the engine module was a complete pain in the backside to line up properly....I had to tear it off...luckily the engine module itself is still relatively intact, so it should be an easy fix....I'm looking through my lil black bag 'o tricks to see if I have some small gauge balsa wood to slide through the length of the section that gets glued up against the side of the engine....gotta print out a new lower shoulder now....pics soon...

    design

    I don't think it's totally a design problem. If the inside of the engine module had bulkheads against the port and starboard walls, then there would be something to push against when mounting the shoulders. Another possibility would be to make the lower shoulder out of two parts vs. one. (in other words, the first part would be the long box shape that is actually mounted against the engine module, and the second part would attach to the lower side of the block...if that makes any sense at all....
