You can remove most dents in balsa simply by wetting the dent and applying heat from a covering iron . The steam generated swells the fibers back to their normal shape. It saves a lot of filling and sanding plus no filler to fall out later.
Have don similar contortions holding bits with knees hand and applying cyano ! Have been stuck firmly to fuselages in past on a couple of occasions !

Having ordered my short kit from Sarik yesterday, I’m re-reading these threads with renewed interest! Rather than struggle to distort the 1/8 sheet sides, is there any reason why one shouldn’t plank the more curvaceous sections? I’m not saying it would be quicker but I think, for me at least, it might be less stressful.

Trevor, I'd recommend having a look at how Phil has done his fuzz and go with that method of external molding formers. There aren't really enough formers down the fuselage for planking, just the 2 immediately behind the cockpit.
