The pod has been covered with balsa strips. Glued with CA works fine and fast, no need to wait until the glue has settled every strip that is to be glued.
There are about 60 strips used to cover the pod. From the inside, I have put CA glue in order to improve the strength of the covering, which appeared to be a bit weak. I have used soft balsa, better used some stronger balsa for covering.

Rear of the pod filled with some balsa for a better support for the strips to be glued.
The result. 30 strips for each side.
Also the servos have found their place under the bonnet.
Rest for main wing to be closed with balsa for a better support.
