    Try to move the sketch then use sweep directly. or use move body command. the aero foil is fine, the feature tree could be a lot smaller.

    thanks for the tips.
    Tried them;
    - i don't like the the sketch sweep as i have to break the relations with my curve
    - the move body do it's job perfectly as i can do a translation and a rotation
