I agree with you on the size of the gap and putty. The plastic filler was the way to go. I have the filler installed and sanded, puttied up a few spots on the underside and have them just about done. I need to do a tad bit of smoothing and finalize the final buffing. I should be ready to install the wing assembly this weekend. Initial dry fit looks good. But, there is some torsion on the assembly that leverages the front of the assembly down a bit making for a worrisome issue with the front seam. The seam is tight when forced into place. I am just worried about the issue of strain on the joint over the longer term. I need to look more closely at the aft end of the wing/fuse joint area to see if I can find out what is causing the downward torsion. Any ideas or experience with this issue on this kit anyone?
Another question for all of you wise sages..... the radiator outlet "ceiling" was painted zinc chromate when I painted the cockpit parts. It is readily apparent that it is incorrect. My question is what color should it be? A significant amount of the "ceiling" extends past the radiator outlet door. I assume everything exposed to the exterior is the exterior color. Correct? If so, just how far into the radiator does the grey extend? Does this transition to zinc chromate or aluminum? Is my question even making sense?
