Default Airfoil selection for Newport 11

Hi all I am going to build a Newport bebe 11 WW1 By_Plain

Specs are as follows!

WS= 44 in
Engine OS 40 FS
Estimated finish weight will be 2.6 lbs - 3.3 lbs

I intended to use a Clark_Y for this but was thinking for an underchamber foil!

Any coments welcomed.

A thinned Clark-Y would be scalish..
Normally the Clark-Y is 12% thick.. something around 9% would look OK.
