Thanks everyone for your positive feedback and the tips.

I use two styrofoam pieces ("styrodur" to be more precize, that is the light blue stuff) of about 2cm of thickness and glue them along the fuselage. That increases stability of the overall construction and allows the use of two more struts to support the upper wing. These struts are reinforced with bamboo skewers on the leading edges and attach pretty nicely to the styrofoam. I wanted it to be rather solid in anticipation of some harder landings I produce on a regular basis.

Here we go with some more photos as the build progresses...
