Come to think of it the wire model may not be a bad idea.
I made epoxy resin RC boat hulls by carving the shape from foam, epoxying it up, and the melting the foam out with MEK or acetone. Messy but not to hard to do and got a great result. Use EPOXY resin instead of fiberglass for gas tanks. (Might consider lining it with fuel resistant coating too)
