I have checked my documentation and the wing root incidence on the full size was 3 degrees and 0 at the tip giving in effect 3 degrees of washout, I agree with you if you set the model at 0 degrees at the root the thrust line will be the same, 0. where as I am looking to build mine to the original 3 degrees it will effect the thrust line. Thinking on the full size and looking at drawings the turbine would of been quite central in the air-frame due to its size hence the thrust line angle, and wing incidence. As I see it the only difference will be the angle of attack the aircraft flies at but then taking into account the non scale weight differences between the model & full size this would change things, possibly to eliminate the wing root incidence on the model. You have me now doubting building to true scale in these areas. This is what forums are for.
