The wing geometry, aspect ratio etc. are very near to scale as well. Don't know about the fuse though.

I maidened it on Saturday and was not at all impressed with its performance, but maybe that was just my incompetent piloting... I will test it again on a better day and have an experienced pilot fly it.

It is obviuos that it would be possible to build a very good performing ASW 20 with scale wing geometry and a modern airfoil. Maybe I'll do a new set of wings if these really dont work out...
