yup

The way the original aircraft were done was to build skeletons, and cover them with curved bits of plywood, or in the case of later aircraft, sheet them with curved bits of alloy.

It's doable today with things like ultra thin ply, balsa or depron.

Ultimately bits of abrasive paper, filler and 'bionic eyeballs' make it all come out right..enough....
