.... I glued 2 layers of already warped 1/2in plywood together and shaped with hand tools....
Does 'already warped' refer to dihedral? Or how did you get the dihedral?
I used 1/2inch ply which is hard to bend and laminate a curve so I picked pieces that were already a little curved and laminated them together with clamps to the the 1 inch Anhedral.

[quote]Yes just a bit at LE and TE to make it a semi-symmetrical airfoil. Mostly flat on bottom so rests flat on fuse.[/quote]

Cool - Clark Y profile (more or less) :D

Another fast candidate, easy to route because flat underneath (intrados) : Aquila9.3 smoothed and x0.8 = Aquila7.4 allow to slim airfoil sections down using the "Airfoil plotter" menu on the left. ... quilasm-il
