Any advice is welcome. BTW I've watched many build videos on this bird and them all gloss over inserting the rod and securing the wings.
There are two screws holes, one in each wing, that have a friction hold down method for keeping the wing on. Sound like the screws are not backed out enough to allow the shaft to slide through easily. will get a wing and add another post shortly.

Hey Diamond Hobby. It's sad that FMS is discontinuing the 1400mm p-47 model. Among others. Is there any word on new versions coming out?

It's a reference to "secretly working on". The terms originated with Lockheed's World War II Skunk Works project.

My vote goes for 1700 and maybe a little larger!!! ME/BF 109---P38---P47 Razorback---Spifire!!! I was put off at first with the price of the bigger ones, but since I have them, they just are so much better IMO.
