I’m sure that we are all watching with interest though Vince.
A lovely piece of work as usual & I look forward to hearing of a successful maiden flight in due course :)

The wing shape is a work of technical genius. Besides the shape pf the plan view, the wing leading edge rolls downwards towards the tip whilst the wing tip begins to bend upwards. Needless to say, I decided not to replicate this in the model (Scale Police please spare the Rod!!)

Here is a copy of that wings shape and the complicated main spar which had to be produced
