Wing attachment Ideas?

I've been toying with a few different ideas for attaching the wing to the fuselage. I really dislike the idea of using rubber bands for anything more than basic trainers.

Normally when I scratch build I will use a 1/4-20 tap and a couple nylon bolts to attach the wings, but in this case, I think I will go with 4-40 screws into blind nuts. Tabs in the leading edge of the wings that key into slots in the fuselage with a couple screws at the trailing edge. I want to keep this project fairly simple with kitting in mind.

I am open to suggestions here. I'll keep plugging away at the fuselage design. Should have more renders in a few days.
