Sketch aerofoil

Hey guys,

Not sure if this is the right group to place this question, but can't quite hurt. I am drawing the belly fairing on an aircraft, it is the joint between the wing and the cabin for those who do not know what I mean.

I need to draw the aerofoil shape to where the fairing meets the wing, I can easily draw the aerofoil, clearly as I done it for the wing, but I need the aerofoil to correctly match which becomes quite tricky if the wing is twisted/swept.

Any ideas of how I find the exact match, especially if the wing geometry changes but the fairing stays the same!?! I don't really want any intersection points....

You can see the interference between the surfaces already, plus the gap between the wing and aerofoil cut on the fairing.
