All the parts were created on top of the plan and are sized exactly to the plan, since I'm not really a Jenny person do these pictures look right?
In WWI airplanes the wing had aoa so that the leading edge of the arch of the airfoil scooped air with the trailing edge. In short put a couple degrees of incidence into both wings see the linked image
Even pigs and bricks will fly with enough thrust.
