How to get outer profile of a delta wing

Hi
I,ve made a few delta(triangle) wings cut out of polistyrene.I use a hot wire connected to a nail on the one side and I pull it through by hand on the other side.
The problem I have is that on the side nearest to the nailv is forever melting no matter what the temp is set to or else the tip of the wing is so thin.
I want to get the same profile as the inner and just reduce it in size to the size I want.
I was thinking of making a photo copy of the profile and reuce it to the size I want.
Any other ideas?
