Nice job

And very quick

Regarding the corrugations on the top wing fuel tank

What I did with my Moth when I built it about 20 years ago was to go to the local art/hobby supply store and buy some lengths of wicker.

It is used for weaving baskets and is very flexible. I glued strips on the tank close to each other, when these were dry I spread white water based wood glue along the strips and allowed it to flow between the strips. The end result was quite convincing and has lasted many years/flights.
