The "airfoil" isn't critical, just keep it the same thickness as the original and you will be OK.
The original Diamond Dust airfoil with 4 flat sides did the job with the sag of the covering material forming the actual airfoil between the 2 ribs.
I see you are still sharing wisdom in here, how have you been?
