Topflight Staggerwing Foam wing replacement

Hi DemonDriver here today I picked up 2 Topflight Beach Staggerwing fuselages But No wings "No longer made" so this build is gonna follow me scratch building 2 sets of new wings, They still make the cowl, stabilizers, wing struts, rudder, but the wings have been discontinued.

http://www.top-flite.com/reviews/topa0905-flyrc.pdf

Wingspan: 72.5 in
Wing Area: 1525 sq in
Length: 62.5 in
Weight: (as advertised) 17-19 lbs but with foam wings shave 2 lbs off that weight.

Might be a few spare wing panels around, even though they are discontinued. Some folks would ding a wing panel and buy the upper or lower sets to replace one wing. I would put a wanted ad on here and on RCU. You might find some wing panels.

I have one about half done I need to get back to work on.
