As you are only interested in the full shape of the plane (and not it's
single parts) you could help yourself by automatically closing these holes.
I see more problems with the correct shape of the wings. The models
won't get it right and using just some NACA profiles won't work with the
higly optimized profiles of modern aircrafts (like those from Airbus).
