twin wings

by and large the two kits have a similar structure of the wings

both having a single moulding for the lower wings with separate mouldings for the right and left hand upper wings. the only significant difference being in the separate wing tip mouldings to allow the option of tip tanks or not on the T.5 I have elected to go without the tanks just for the difference between the two finished kits. The modern kit also has the closed wheel well covers moulded in, on the old kit these will be added later

and so the wings are assembled, with the modern ones again being much more realistically detailed. Also, you can see the difference in the way the panels are described, raised lines giving way to a more accurate indented line to demarcate the panels. Testimony I guess of the advances in tooling capability over the years

Also interesting is the continuation on modern Airfix kits of the wing profile into the fuselage

but both old and new take the same approach to adding on aerialsAlso
