Not really a new idea, but an interesting concept, I was looking for an idea to build a very strong fuselage just 3 or 4 hours....
The general idea is to draw a foam fuselage of 50mm and cover with coro!
I made a very basic prototype to test the concept with the "Mochtang." For the 2nd model, I chose the Mig 3 and I try to forms "softer"
The photos may be clearer than my English ! or Chinglish !!
Preparation of the motor mount
Filter the rear part with a hot wire
The engine mount is bonded
Dress with coro
A soon to step 2

Cutting the coro
Collage with foam PU glue
Leave a wedge for the stab (ÚlÚvator)
Allow to dry until the next step ...

I really like the idea and your thoughts on how you did it. It does look really good. So keep us informed as to your progress. That method does make for a strong stiff fuselage.

Oh that is very nice looking! I have a somewhat similar deign I am working on for a foamy, but haven't had any luck with getting the rounded wing tip right yet. I like your solution. Very nice styling on the paint job too.

Ah, that would explain why it is so consistent and smooth.
BTW, I couldn't tell from the pictures; how are you doing your wing attachment to the monoblock?
