Default YELLOW AIRCRAFT P47 WING AREA

Anyone know what the wing area is for the 80" wing span Yellow Aircraft P47?
I want to calculate the wing loading.

For what it's worth:

The wing of the P-47 is close to an Ellipse

Thus:

If I remember correctly,

(wingspan/2)*(Chord/2)* 3.14 = Area Note: Chord is measured in the middle of the wing

Just curious, what is the cause of the 9lb. weight difference?
