For the 1/72 Airfix HP 0/400, the wings are two pieces. Not halves,
but a wing with the bottom center cut out and a piece to fit in. It
was impossible to insert the piece in the middle and fill the seam
without damaging the ribs. I put it together, scored all the ribs,
sanded them off and re-added them with sprue. Tedious, but it worked.
