Looks like it would make a great F3F wing planform; plenty of chord in the tips, you should be able to pull really hard on it! I'm sure that's the plan, anyway....

Good luck with the design.

I plan to reduce the forward sweep in the T.E. and shooting for 1000 square inches even. Nothing like nice round numbers.
