Your plans already take that into account. Regarding wheels, I've recently found a treasure chest in a local Rubber & Gasket store - rubber O rings of all sizes for just pennies each. They make perfect tires when mounted on Depron/light ply, and they help to get some weight forward for balancing these short-nosed airplanes.

I'll add 1.2mm CF to top and bottom wings.
Rather than starting all over, consider just gluing a flat CF strip to the bottom of the top wing and skip the bottom wing. Paint the CF first to match the tan, and it won't be very visible at all.

... print out another wing and cut some LE patch strips to cover the CF.
What I do now is paint the CF white after I glue it on and blend it into the leading edge - that way after the tissue is applied there's no evidence of the rod.

I enjoyed your build log - thanks.
