I know the ICM is a clone of the Tamiya but I wasn't sure. I need replacement wings but don't know if they will mate up to both types of fuselages. Has anyone tried this?

but have only dry fit them, and the fit seemed just as if it were all Tamiya parts.

He needs a fuselage and I need wings. If we can get one spare kit from somebody and split it, it would save some money.

...the ICM kit is a copy of the Tamiya kit. But dry fit, dry fit, dry fit!

the extended version says "be very careful". Maybe the ICM kits are a mixed bag of Tamiya and AccMin parts, but the moulding quality is quite poor. What you usually find is an extraordinary amount of warped parts, plagued with terrible sink marks and flashes. Otherwise, almost every part is interchangeable.
