Compared to the above, Roden kits are little more than doorstops or maybe under the short leg of the table .
To make things either easier or more complicated depending out your perspective, lozenge was applied in sections on the real aircraft. Each section would span the distance between the ribs that ran chord-wise (front to back) or a few of them. It was then reinforced by what's known as 'rib-tapes' which was basically linen strips of lozenge or even solid pink or blue. The tape also ran around the leading edges of the wings as well. What this means is that you can apply your own decal in sections. I know in 1/32 you can buy ready made rib-tape decal but I don't know about 1/72.

Pic in link clearly shows rib-tapes but the lozenge hasn't been applied section wise. Hope this helps.
Well dang! I like that idea of doing it in sections, but I wonder how hard it would be to match up the seams?
I love those Wingnut kits...I will get one soon
