shaping resin

Hi Guys,
Your assistance is required. I have a slipper fuel tank that I have to fit to the bottom of an aircraft fuselage. The resin piece is beautifully flat where it joins the underneath of the fuselage unfortunately the fuselage is slightly curved. How do I slightly reshape / bend the resin piece to fit the fuselage curve. Do I use the old hot water trick?
All help gratefully accepted.
Cheers
Joe M

Hot water is the usual way but you don't get a lot of control. The other ways are either to carved the piece to fit or glue it the way it is and then apply filler

Thanks Pat,
I'll try some hot water and hopefully won't end up in it.
Cheers
