Re(2): gr5 k (tin wing)

The tin wing was to be of lithium alloy, and our test pilots, especially Navy, were very keen, viewing the Carbon U.S. wing as suitable for bomb carrying only - which is pretty true.
the tin job would probably also have been a lot more battle damage resistant than carbon, too.
