I know exactly what you mean about keeping it simple, it pays off so much as time goes on.
At the moment I have been inspired by the various Fighters and bombers models to try and make my own. Due to habit I seem to be making the wings from NURBS cylinders. They are looking great along all the edges, but they are not closed off at either end (at least not looking decent, never a smooth curve).
For a wing of a plane, should I be using the NURBS cylinder at all? I've tried using things like poly spheres and crushing them down into a flater surface, but when I then want to tweak the shape I find I'm swammped by to many vertex's!!
Am I missing a really easy way to do a fully rounded simple wing shape? I've also tried lofting a series of CV curves, but the less said about what they looked the better............ :p
