Looks like I will go with National Balsa.
I got some of the fuselage parts drawn and verified the fit in 3d. Posting some preliminary renders. Parts are still being fitted so they aren't yet textured. These build renders aren't necessarily in the proper build sequence. Just here to help illustrate what I have in mind so far for the fuselage structure.

Fuselage is built around a basic crutch assembly.
Doubler and landing gear block side piece.
Landing gear block.
Landing gear support structure.
Landing Gear is bent from two lengths of 3/32" music wire. They will be held in place with straps.
I'm planning to accommodate 28mm outrunners (370-480). Lot's of room to move the battery forward or aft to make good CoG with different weight motors.
