Just a dumb question regarding the 150 sqr" wing rule: I get the calculation method, but does that mean BIG-WING planes like deltas (Mirage3, Skyray, Dagger/Dart) will be much smaller than eg a Sabre? Theres a lot more wing on those deltas!

Something like the small-wing Starfighter might end up twice the scale of a Mirage-3? Or is the wing area rule meant to tie-down something else?

I don't think this aspect of the wing-rule on the WW2 warbirds was such a "problem" as they all pretty much was the same basic lay-out...

Sorry to complicate things

George
