Thanks Dave, I was being a bit thick there. This would make it a very suitable vintage model under our rules. 1937 give it lots of age bonus. The clarkY ish section will work well and we can use ailerons, at least for now. It will make a lovely scale subject too. The best of all worlds. I think I have found my next project!
Thanks Planeman.
