Either one or two wooden dowels ( small in diameter ) CA or epoxied on the hatch for the front section and Aeromarine cowl locks in the back .

Some of the 1/8 scale and Sport 40 racers have gone to Rare Earth magnets to hold their cowlings on. A clean look with no Cam-locks sticking out. Phil Thomas at R/C Marine Design through www.stonerracing.com has some.
