Lovely build! How difficult was it fitting the resin wing to the fuselage? That's the wing set intended for the Hasagawa kit, correct?

Thank You all again

Hi devinj
Yes , the F4F-3 wing set is intendend for the hasegawa kit
it was not difficult to fix it in the airfix kit , I just had to file the raised part on the fuselage wing attachment, glueing it with bi-component glue and insert reinforcement pins from inside

Very well done representation!  I appreciate the exhaust staining on the landing gear, nice attention to detail.  What did you use for the upper color?
