I vote for Hoppy's idea on washout and taper.

I have several twins and use metal motor mounts (described here
Foamboard Building Techniques: Metal Motor Mounts (8 min 23 sec)
), adhered with Scotch heavy duty foam mounting tape, stuck to a plastic gift card which is securely hot-glued to the exposed foam of the underside of the wing (cut out a small card-sized area). I have a small stash of titanium plate but aluminum barstock would work, just a little heavier. It's worked out very well so far, even up to the 6lb Skyvan I made recently, which carried 3 1/2 lbs of cargo. Nacelles do look cool, but I have never built them, just to keep simple.
