I am curious as to why? or what for?
I remember a number of us leaving panels off to get a shorter wingspan for more performance before. In the two I had built previously, it was easy to wind up sanding and shaping a little too much off the wing tips or having the ribs a little closer together causing the wing span to be shorter. 1/16 if a inch falls in the range of someone sanding and shaping the wingtips differently. I can see lots of planes being as much as 1/2 an inch off from each other, even from the same builder. I think the one time five of us had out Astro Hogs together at the flying field on the same day, they were all a little different from each other, and we all had different wing tips.

the plans could vary over the years, it depends on how SIG copied the plans. If a third party scanned and copied the plans, the overall size can be off a little too. SIG did change the design and plans over the years from the earliest models.
