to answer your question , I built 2 scratch built airplanes from aluminum
this was back in the 70's , they sold sheets of 0.003 aluminum slightly
thinner then soda can .

construction was (first model ) balsa typlical gulliows type , then
the pattern's for the coverings were made from paper - cut the
aluminum , then gluded to airframe - end result very light weight
very strong airframe .

the second model used aluminum bulkheads with balsa stringers
also ended up with a very strong /light weight airframe , not hard
but time comusing .
