All the quickbuild kits from the Philippines starting June 2020 to January 2021 are being recalled. The primer was not applied (at all in some locations) properly. The primer itself is also being tested by vans for its chemical makeup. Corrosion has been found in many new kits.
I know first hand unfortunately...

Well that is a bummer considering I order QB wings two months ago... Sounds like the wait on QB wings is going to sky rocket past the 10 month window I was given when ordered if they have to back fill all the recalled wings..

Default Install wings after finish kit?

Well now that QB situation has been updated, my wings won't be here for a long time yet.

So does anyone know the CONS of moving forward with the finish kit, potentially not fitting the wings until the finish kit has been installed? Or waiting until i move the plane to the hangar all together?

I tried the search option a few different ways but didn't find any specific advice.

I did the finishing kit before I got my wings. I donít find a conflict. Almost ideal. You can do everything except the upper gear intersection fairings.
