Turns out that through several attempts to get the smoothing right, I have somehow lost the welding on LOD0, that's why the leading wing edge looks a bit odd.
Must be because I'm an absolute beginner when it comes to 3D.
A new version will be out soon, maybe (but unlikely) today, but for sure latest tomorrow where this will be fixed.
But it's really just the leading edge where this matters.

Best regards - Mike

Just downloaded this new great plane....

....about the 409....

" 1f.) Modact 2/Ultrapack 2/HSFX 4 users (IL-2 4.09):
                                               Extract the contents of this mod to the "MODS" folder of your game.
                                               Additionally download and install the 4.09 addon pack for this mod. "

There is a missing link?
