My kit had a short-shot ventral fin; the plastic did not fully fill the entire mold, losing the tip. I sliced the ragged edge straight, then superglued a thin piece of stock styrene. Once the joint had hardened, a little sanding produced the following results.
The wings were finally glued on. Care was taken to ensure the wings dried at the correct 3-degree anhedral droop.
Due to the kit design, a large part of the join will need to be eliminated (marked in red).
You can see the rivet lines indicating the true panel breakdown of the actual wing.
Here’s how she looks now. Stay tuned for more updates.
