This is how tunnel works, it can work quite well, assuming that there is no distortion in the image, i.e. a nice scan rather than photographed, and if there are any loop closures, then the destortions for each loop is calculated the same.

In case you want to use the same ordering of clicks, for the rotation and scaling, the first click is where the scan is at the same point as the computer centreline, the secound is on a point on the scan and the third is on the corresponding point on the centre line.  The first and last clicks are typically survey stations, so you can tell tunnel to start and finish on them(using snap to node features), so there are no errors due to not quite clicking on the survey stations.
