Estimate the wing area at about 125 square inches- it's elliptical, 27" span, 6 " root chord, 5.5" at about 50% span and 3" at the tip rib before the wingtip. Using a simple ellipse and an online calculator that gives 0.86 square feet, but the shape may not be quite right, probably close enough though.

There must be a utility somewhere that you could stick a scan of the ellipse into and give you an accurate measure I suppose.
