Slightly OT but i need help for a scratch built heli fuselage

Hello fellow modellers!

i say slightly OT because i need help not building an airplane but rather building a Fuselage for a Micro Helicopter Tandem.

The Fuselage in question would be a CH47 Chinook. The model is a Dragonfly Tandem Heli, AUW 640g so far. The Fuselage shouldn't weigh a lot more than 100g finished.

it's about 400mm long, 250mm wide and 150mm high...

Now to the problematic part...

I have no idea about scratch building such a Fuselage out of foam...
The Fuselage cross section is quite constant between the 2 pylons, so that might be made with the usual bulkhead and then using thin depron to cover the sides... but other i really have no idea how to go about it.

Any pointers ?
