Need help: FW-190 A3/U3 Trop from Best papermodels

Anyone who has already set up this model can help me? I confess my inability to understand where the part 51 is. I found many photos on the Internet that saved me a lot of time, but none of them shows this piece. From the drawing, it looks like it goes inside the fuselage, apparently behind the engine, but I'm not sure.

Simply based on the the close color match to the inner gear doors (in the wing),
I would say it fits in the fuselage, just ahead of the wing cutout, with the gray facing aft.
I believe it could be the forward face of the landing gear bays.*

* Having never built this particular kit, there is a margin of error in my estimate

If you go here
Fw-190 Trop 1_33 bestpapermodels

There is a pic on the bottom that shows what I believe to be this part in place.
Look at the very forward section of the main wheel wells.

Thanks to Texman and CMDRTED

Thank you Texman. You're right. I was not sure, but the part's function is even to cover where the wheels are. In fact the piece makes a lot more sense if it were part of the wing assembly, not the fuselage. If I come to build this model again (there are so many models to be assembled), I will certainly take another approach to this piece. Overall I'm satisfied with the model, although I still have a lot to evolve. Thanks for the help. The CMDRTED assembly was beautiful. Too bad I have not discovered this post before.

Thank you Gene K. Great help. Future Reminder: Look for more about the model before you start assembling and not when you start to have problems. The help I had here would have spared me hours of poorly-used work.
