The Wingnut kits are indeed very well engineered.
I keep doing dryfits, not to adjust and make the fit better as with other kits, no, the fit is usually perfect.
I keep making sure that I'm not ruining the fit in any way as I'm going along.
Famously, the Wingnut fit is so exact that even a thin coat of paint on mating surfaces can cause alignment problems.
-Peter; It is very satisfying to put a completed Wingnut model on the shelf, but also, the whole building process of these kits is a great experience. They have definitely put in effort to make it that way. Well researched options, great detail, fantastic instructions filled with plenty of references.
I keep taking the instructions out of the kits in my stash just to read.
The rigging is of course the tricky part, the sigh of relief is every time I let go of the Ez-line, and the CA holds the load!
I have been meaning to try different kinds of CA, but have not gotten around to it. Suspect the thin variety I'm using is not ideal...
(Accelerator does not work well for me)
