BoKu, I wonder if a little less "swoopiness" (I am sure that's the technical term!) might make things easier. The rear fuselage could be made from two identical sections (left/right or top/bottom) complete with the joggles (male on one side, female on the other) so only one form is needed. Ditto the cockpit area if it were done as top and bottom sections to form a rectangular cross-section with rounded corners, you'd just have to cut out the cockpit area (or leave it out when doing the layup). With that approach you could make the whole fuselage aft of the firewall with two of your chipboard-and-aluminum-sheet molds.
