Default To repair old BVM f-86 Airfoils...

A friend gave me an old BVM F-86 Sabre, GDF 63 one piece wing. It has the wings damaged beyond possible repair, I recovered the components of the wing (CF spars, gears mount,).
To rebuild again only I need the airfoils of the wing, the Bob's original ones or similar someone adapted for a model plane of this size, to Profili drawing and cut news foam core or balsa rib.
The airfoil drawn in the plans sheet has the aspect of one NACA 63-XX10 or 64-XX10.
That advise me?

Thanks
Manuel

It can often be tough to find an actual named matchup like you are looking for. Are the parts of the wing so damaged that you can't make a cut and trace off them? Perhaps just use the airfoil off the plans for the root template and cut and get a tracing off the wreckage for the tip template?

To see if anyone knows the actual airfoil names you might also find that a better place to ask the question is over in the Scale Jets forum. Those folks do a lot more deeper research on stuff like this related to specific kits.
