Yes, the HB-C.1 was the same.  At first I was irritated by this because of 
the need to fill this huge hole.  However, once I'd filled it with Milliput 
and the thing had set up, it was fine and very strong - much stronger and 
easier than trying to butt join a vac lower wing part to the side of a 
fuselage.  Aside from the strength issue, there's also the difficulty of 
getting both wings at the same and correct angle.
