I would complete all detailing and them glue the engine in place. Use a compass for the circle 'notch' or groove, if you have one, or create a template, or use a circle guide.
I love the large scale of this.....!!!

Love the engine details!

Not sure I fully understand about the notch part

Will it just be that small area under the 3 pipe coming from the front of the engine. or is it that whole arc area you are shaving off?

I appreciate the effort you're putting into that build.(y) As for painting/spraying wood...the first few coats have a tendency to raise the grain of the wood. After the first coat, you could sand it with 320 grit to make it smooth.;)

Okay Guys, Here is what I need as I build the cannons. I need someone with a 12 inch figure to sit it down with legs straight out and from his bottom to the top of his head measurement please let me know. After the cannons, I will be flipping this back over and start on boxing in the cock pit. I will also start in behind the seat where baby Yoda's compartment will be. Stay tuned more and more to come Thanks

Okay all sanding is all done on this part now for the cannons, I have a small bit to show, I am making a cannon part so this is really in thinking and process of figuring it all out not a whole bunch to show on this part yet. Thank You Guys for all the likes and comments, keeps me making. I had to replace a cerpintine belt and two pullys on my jeep also had a leaking trans line I had to replace.

kermet - is this the measurement you are looking for? The angle of these photos are poor - my apologies. I'd say the measurement is 6.25 inches from the base of his butt to the top of his head (the photo taken from the side is more accurate). If you need a different measurement, just let me know.
