Default Airfield T-28 Cowling Quest

Hello to all,
New member here with an Airfield T-28 RTF 1400mm. The plane has about 20 flights and I noticed the motor has become very loose (side to side play) and also makes a slight intermittent grinding noise. I'm trying to figure out how to get the cowl off to take a look at the motor but can't get it off.
There's one small screw at the top to remove yet it won't slide off.
Anyone help/suggestions?
Many thanks,
NCFlyer60

There will almost certainly be more than one screw, look around the sides and bottom of the cowl. The screws may be covered by stickers.

Bingo! Thanks. Found two more screws on the sides covered by "Huff N Puff" stickers.
The cowling is loose but now I can't seem to get the aft prop hub off the prop shaft, urghhhhh!

If it's a collet adapter and it's been put on good and tight then the only reliable/safe way to get it off is with a collet puller.
