Trying to build my first wing... built up FFF?

I've only built one balsa wing... that was an gentle lady about 20 years ago.. and I don't remember a thing. I don't have any balsa handy. Is it possible to build a wing from carbon and fan fold? I've tried solite on the fff and it seems like it would stick well enough. I'm out to build a wing for my SS. Going to be a 11.75" chord and around a 55" wingspan. Airfoil is a chen high lift. The wing in the cad drawing I was working on is a bit big at 3' (72" wingspan), but I wanted to see how the spacing looked on the formers. I have them 4" apart.
Am I going to be wasting a lot of effort??
Thanks for any help.
