The first image below indicates the length difference of the Hornet fender compared to a standard. The actual length distance is dependent on the shape of the tail end. Some are more pointed than others.

The second image shows how many different rear fender types there are, on just the left front portion. The top example of the four has no indention, with the bottom three having various shapes of the indention for the battery tray. And the Hornet (& Wasp) didn't use a battery tray. As a result, it doesn't surprise me that your fender may not have an indention where you indicate.
