I feel a bit better today. Have been in touch with customer's rep and parts are coming. Got the second lower wing panel nearly framed and it came out exactly the same length as the other. I was worried.The only thing that makes sense to me is that the plan shrank after printing. Appears to be about 5mm longer than the plan ,again. At least it's consistent.

I've leaned a thing or two. Go with your gut feeling! Everything that has gone wrong has come from my faulty interpretation of the "translated" instructions and/or "where did my modeling skills go!"

I finally found similar Eagle build over on Flying Giants. What he says about this kit I agree 90%!! That 10 percent is held in reserve for the fact that he likes the kit (I will be incorporating some of his mods, BTW!). I'm leaning toward not liking it at all and reminds me daily me as to why I haven't built a kit in years.
Last one was back in '82. I really like designing my own.
