Efficient way to "close" a loft?

Hello all,

 

I am trying to model a wing-like shape by creating a loft from cross-sectional sketches. The end of the wing needs to be rounded but due to the way I've done the loft, I am forced to "close" the wing by adding a secondary loft. I am redrawing the last cross sectional sketch, splitting it into two, and creating a loft out of these two sketches (guided along the profile of the tip).

 

Is there a way to include the wing tip from within the first loft? The reason I ask is because with the current approach you can see a difference between the first and second lofts, which will cause a problem when I attempt run a CFD analysis.

 

I have attached a pdf with images prior to the addition of the second loft, and after adding it.

 

Thank you!
