Ambitious indeed. Not to mention a glutton for punishment dealing with resin warpage and such. I'm confident you'll get this done warts and all. I

The ideal plan is to use as little of the resin parts as possible. And... I have another resin D-13 conversion coming in from the Czech Republic (don't you love how international modeling is?) but I'm guessing it will be even less useful than this set because it ignores the bulges altogether. I'm trying to gather my references to map out a game plan for the modification to the Hasegawa kit parts. Volume 2 of Crandall's Dora Series has some scale drawings of the D-13 including some useful cross sections.

All combined, the photos, the drawings and the Grey Matter fuselage, are starting to give me a more definitive picture of what the bulges look like and where they are located.

This is shaping up to be a very in-depth project John. I like your thoughts about using the resin as a guide to modify the kit parts were needed - that sounds like a much better approach.

Best of luck with it.

Oh yes, this is one of the aspects I love the most! It's the simple things that unite us.

Likewise! A common interest in assembling styrene bits, plus other things, into all sorts of miniature creations, both real and imagined.

Yeah it's funny isn't it. I ended up having a conversation (via google translate) with the French chap that sold me the Mirage N about modelling - really nice guy.
