I would do QB fuselage so I would have control over the fuel tanks. As a QB Wing owner that leaking fuel destroyed my paint after only a few hours of flight and had to re-do sealant and paint on the entire wing (painted fuel tank and wing as a unit so when tanks got removed it destroyed both), I would in no way trust another human being to do my fuel tanks. Also had to pull 2 friends QB tanks to re-seal and re paint their wings also. I will never paint tanks and wing together again. Search forums for "tank blisters", as you can see I'm still sour from this. I had a several award winning airplane that had to be dis-mantled and re painted with less than a hundred hours on it.
