Solidworks Lofting Feature

I am trying to model a piper cub in solidworks, and I am having some issues with the wing tip. Since there is no flat surface to create a sketch and loft to this sketch, I am not sure what to do. The cub wing has a rounded wing tip that is really throwing me for a loop. Here is a screenshot of what I have so far. Can anyone give me some ideas to finish the wing tip?
