Well, it depends on the direction you are extruding. You could also call
skin() with polygons in reversed order 
	transform(translation([-scale_factor*25.4,0,25.4]), airfoil_mm_scaled), 
	transform(translation([-25.4,0,0]), airfoil_mm),

to get the desired result with unreversed vertex order. Always use F12 to
check if you got the right order.
