Thanks dude, a couple of people on rcgroups have used the Cub wing in the past and had good results. I just wanted a more scale looking wing, and one with a full aerofoil section. The Cub wing seems much stronger too, and I was aware that my fuselage is a good deal heavier than stock. It doesn't have ailerons at the moment, but I've been toying with the idea of cutting them in. I'll see how it flies without first.
The floats are the GWS ones, but I spent ages trimming and filling them! You're right, the plastic lower bits were a terrible fit. I used a hot glue gun to stick the lower bits on, so I could fill the gaps and seal at the same time. I put more glue on than I needed to, and then trimmed it back with a sharp scalpel blade one it had cooled down. Even then I had to use some of the model lite filler to hide some of the messy glue gun work! I'm happy with them now, but probably wouldn't buy another set of GWS floats
