The wings are pieced together out of the 707 wings in the proper places - then, reassembled much like a jigsaw puzzle.

The wheel wells are created and boxed in using scrap styrene for detail. The black PC-7 is clearly defining the wing roots. Also, it is used to create the rear portion of the under belly back to the tail.
