It looks like I will be over the design weight, I estimate a finished AUW of 5lbs giving me a wing loading of 16.5 ozs sq. ft. but I'm hopeful that with the modified wing section she'll fly fine.

Looks lovely, Stephen...I shouldn't worry too much about the wing loading as the HQ section is generally very tolerant of the higher values...

Thanks Chris, I was hoping that would be the case with the wing section - it's nice to have a get out of jail card!
