Thanks Sky9pilot, that's my preference as well. It was a print wood kit with spar stubs as part of the fuse structure and the wings were placed on either side of the fuselage root section with no center section to the wing. Still it's a fine kit, I was just wondering what others, who might have built it experienced.

I haven't built from this plan, but I usually modify the build and make a one piece wing for mounting to the fuselage.  Just my preference.  Helps me keep the panels aligned and at the proper incidence.  Of course you could build a jig to accomplish this with the Bell plan!

A wonderful and well engineered kit to be sure. I am building the "N" version. My question is there seems to be no way to cover the wings before they are mounted to the fuselage. Has anyone else built this kit noticed this?

It would seem to me that following the Curtiss fashion to make the wing as one unit mated to the fuse would have been better.
