Think your right Pete the later variants were probably upgrades. Brian Sharp has gone for winglets maybe he can advise on it.

Winglets, did someone mention winglets? Perhaps these are of some help.

Martin, the wing extensions are of hard balsa which push tightly onto the wing. This is carved to shape before the notch is added for the winglet. The winglet is to section and angled outward at 5 deg. (so they dont lean inward with the dihedral ) and set with 1 deg. washout. All of this courtesy af Antonia.
Brian. :)

Hi Martin wing tips are dead easy to make I made mine very similar to Brians but mine was made out of 0.8 ply with balsa on both sides. Then sanded to shape the ply in the middle helps . then a hardwood tip section with a angle is your on and sanded to shape. Really easy no need for 3d printing . pics of my ash 31 tips ROO :D

As much as I am in awe of all you guys with your modelling skills it leaves me completely cold having to do hand finishing with dust & sweat to contend with.
I'm not a natural at balsa bashing. At school wood working didn't apeal due to its nature of being to damned easy to take off too much material & make an arse of myself. I then turned to metal working! literally as I'm now a professional Cnc programmer setter & operator of all things lathe shaped. I tend to get by only by the love of the finished form & the flying of these woks of art.
Also to add most of my projects end up in the for sale section half finished :(
