The general wing geometry (i.e. the stuff you get from an 3-view) is one
thing. The the real profile of the wing  is crucial here - and it's
AFAIK kept as an trade secret.

On modern aircraft (like all Airbus modells and the newer Boeing ones)
these are extremely optimized to be able to fly at high speeds efficently.

Your models also won't have enough detail (= polygons) to reflect that
geometry in the needed detail (or they would be bad models for
visualisation...)
