Welcome back on this one! I've been missing your updates. I'm glad you worked out the wing root problems-- I thought I had that problem licked by gluing the top wing halves to the fuselage, then gluing in the bottom wing halves. By doing it that way I had no gaps at the wing root or engines--- but then I looked at the right wing, out near the wing tip I noticed a significant upward warp-- no gaps, but a wicked warp isn't a good trade off-- so I'm trying to figure out how to fix it now. This kit is a typical Special Hobby kit with some expected warts, but I've never seen one of thier kits with this huge wing issue. Looking forward to your finished product.

Many many thanks.

Russ just took me a while to get my ducks in a row. Kits like these definitely take a bit of a different approach to get them to play. At least now I can move forward.
