I've evaluated the GWS float. It is the correct scale length and width for the 850 mm wingspan Zero. I'm still concerned that the aft fuselage is a bit longer than scale. I did more accurate calculations against another 5-view and the length was increased by almost exactly 2 cm... which is accounted for by the increase in root wing chord.

I will just build it and make provision for any needed modifications of float position and angle relative to the fuselage. I am going to leave about one half of the wing incidence in the airframe and provide for adding down thrust.

Work is being particularly demanding during this month... progress will be slow.
