Starting off with the wings the parts in both kits are very nice and fit flawlessly, The Fine Molds kit has some amazing texture which when finished in bare metal will bring out the stressed metal. The Wingsy kit has some very fine and amazing rivit detail. Which one will turn out better with paint has yet to be seen. The Fine Molds kit has the cockpit floor as part of the wing while the Wingsy kit has it separate. The Fine Molds cockpit floor is rather basic in comparison to the Wingsy kit which includes a window in the floor and several PE parts for more detail .

The Fine Molds kit has the option for raised and lowered flaps while the Wingsy kit has separate alerons. The Wingsy kits wings are also a shade longer in width than the Fine Molds, Which on is correct I don’t know having limited documentation of this aircraft. 
The forward cockpit fire wall/ammo bine are more finely detailed in the Fine Molds kit but the cockpit Rear Bulkhead and floor are more detailed in the Wingsy kit which also adds several PE parts. Overall the Fine Molds kit I think captures the side walls better than the Wingsy kit. The Fine Molds kit gives the interal structure to be glues to the sides of the fusalage while the Wingsy kit has the walls inluded in the cockpit tube. The Fine Molds kit may be more basic on the rear bulkhead but it includes the Oxygen bottles behind the bulkhead while the Wingsy kit does not. Overall both kits have some nice detail in the cockpit and leave others out.

Yes, it is true. The wingspan of the A5M was 11 meters. 11000/48 = 229.2 mm

Good review! Thank you!
