A question or a few about the wheel wells.

Response to Uphill Battle!! Tamiya/CMK F4U-4 Corsair.

How is the length of the wheel wells? If the resin shrunk as it cured, did the wheel wells get smaller as well? Will you use the kit wheel well doors or did the resin conversion come with the doors? How is the fit of the doors?

I know it is kind of late now since you already did a great fix, but would it have been better, although more work, to cut off the rear side of the resin wheel well and keep a narrow wheel well to flap area. It would be as wide as the Tamiya piece and the styrene sheet you used?

You did a great fix and it won't even be noticable that the area from wheel well to flap is a little wider. I was just wondering for future reference.
