Profa, if you speak about the gap between the wing and the fuselage, don't fill it: on the actual airplane, the wings were simply fixed, and the presence of a gap is normal...

Daniel, I was talking about the gap between wing halves underneath the fuselage, the one where I had to separate them in order to get enough distance to fix'em properly to the fuselage... it's not just a gap, it's actually 2mm hole :-bat

Plastic strips and filler could solve this ;) You know that, I am sure

OK, you're right for that: must be filled... ;)

Finally have found Bison's 2-component epoxy to cure the gap :-obey
I've used this before, but during the apartment change it somehow got lost :-roll
2 minutes mix and application later, gap looks much better. Another light coat will follow after this one dries...
As the afterthought - epoxy blob, leftover from mixing, could be used for water puddle on some diorama or model base (last pic)... ;)

Actually, I had already used it to simulate water on this "heavy rains" vignette, few years ago:

Epoxy was water sanded with 270 and 800 grit, and after painting there's no gap :-jump
I also made footsteps, this time of alu foil...
Meanwhile (tonight, that is) the plane is weathered, so now it's just to apply some decals and top wing follows...
I love this peacock more and more :-love
