Unfortunately it is necessary to install the landing gear in the wing before the nacelles can be fit. The wing fit to the fuselage is nice, so the plan is to build and paint the fuselage and wings
as separate units and do the wing join last. The wings halves were not trouble free to join. While the trailing edges joined up well, the leading edges of both wings had a pronounced step
that had to be sanded to fair in. It took several attempts to get the seam to disappear using thin CA after the first sanding. This work was done before the landing gear was installed.
A gentle reminder that this is a mid-70's kit.
