Cracks in plastic.

I was applying Halloway House Floor Finish to the plane which I use on all my foamies to seal & protect them and noticed cracks in the plastic wing inserts on the top of the leading edge of the fuselage sides where the wings slide into them. Anyone else seen this?
I couldn't move them but they run across the plastic? One on each side.
I also haven't noticed any trouble with the Gray fairing on the fuse in front of the motor. Mine won't budge so I don't think it will come off during flight.

One last question, is everyone mounting the nose gear angled forward or to the rear of the plane?
I would think facing forward would assist it from bending backwards during take off & landings?

I'll probably fly it off the field first then hit the bay this weekend for water takeoffs!
