    @LEweirdplanes I lived in China for about 9 years. To my knowledge they're different to a certain extent. Both are under AVIC however 洪都航空工业集团 is located in 江西 while 成都飞机工业集团 is in 四川. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    @CRJ900Pilot Its the same concept. Now thin it down. Style I used for my airliner is exactly the same as the one used here.

    @CRJ900Pilot Not really tips. Its just through lots of math and practice. I might make a video explaining the math soon. I streamed quite a bit over the weekend on doing the wings, not sure if that helped.

    @CRJ900Pilot Unfortunately not. These wings takes hours upon hours to complete - and i dont have that much free time on my hands.

    Would you consider building these type of wings on one of my planes? Also with a sweep wing feature?
