Quote from: PR19_Kit on February 01, 2021, 04:18:32 PMOne thing I noticed while checking back on my other two MB5 builds. Everyone had problems with the wheel well inserts of the AZ kit making the wings too thick and some sort of action had to be taken to get the two wing halves to fit. In my case I filed the darn things down until they did fit but others used different methods.Checking my first MB5 build, the one in which I used the Skybirds 86 'marbled' kit, I founds this pic of the real thing while it was being built.Does it have any wheel well surrounds like the AZ kit? No, not a sign of them.In fact the aft part of the wheel well has a completely straight divider from the wing area aft of the well!I'd go so far as to say that AZ didn't look too closely at this pic, so I've left the pesky well surrounds out completely.

It's as if no one ever bothered to go take a look at a real Mustang.
