and now the fun starts,

i have a drawing from the manual and that is slightly different, so it back to the good old fashioned checking photos against drawings :(

Yes, even manufacturers drawings can often differ with the final thing as many times the aircraft can be altered on the workshop floor. I have found many examples of this when doing scale drawings.
