Airfix 1/72 C-47A

The wing fillets are separate parts that are glued on to the fuselage and they fit well and were easy to get in place.  Although the lower wing center section fit well to the fuselage 
with the spar in place, it was necessary to thin down the spar where it nests into the lower wing center section before the spar would drop into position where the upper wings
would mate properly at the nacelles and leading edge.  The spar height was OK but the width fore and aft did not rest all the way down in the groove in the lower wing center.  When the
the upper wing outer panels were test fitted they mated very well everywhere except at the wing root, so .020 plastic card was added to the root of the upper panels to improve the fit.
