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!
