I'm beginning to find that you're right; to get the lightning wings looking even reasonable, I've been using a plethora of photos, mostly from airliners.net. The 3-views are just completely muddled on an item like that. It's quite addictive this 3d stuff... I've done simple modelling for CFD work in the past, but producing something you're actually interested in and can fly at the end of it (if one ever reaches that stage) is much more fun!
