my exact point justin and special hobby et al engine compartments are all to small to fit vector or pavla engines. why not some resin parts to dress up the eduard sized top end?

Justin brings up a good point.  do we as scale modelers want to use a highly detailed resin engine that is 1/8" too short so it fits the Eduard fuselage without modification or should we modify the fuselage to accept the correct sized engine?  I remember the original Eduard Albatros D.V kit had a white metal engine that was the correct size, but soft on detail.  When they did the new tool Albatros D.III and D.V they came out with the smaller plastic engines, not sure why they did this but it has been this way for them ever since.
