I found the trick is to be prepared to cut thin wedges out of the sheet as you offer it up to the curve. Once you are happy with the curve the sheet will take up throw tradition out of the window and apply the cyano!
Thanks for the advice I also ended up cutting a thin wedge out of the top leading edge sheeting. I reinforced the area underneath by sticking a piece of sheeting across the cut. I am going to extend the sheeting on the underside all the way to wing tip as it is nearly flat and will strengthen the tip. I may just add some block on the top to extend both spars to the tip.

I'm going to put in an ASP 80FS.
