Default how to scratch build hulls?

My basic plan is to build a 1/72 or bigger wet hulled rc akula from scratch as i don't feel like shelling out for the fibreglass hulls, are there any particularly good or recognised ways of making a submarine hull other than making a fibreglass mould route?

My plan is to make an internal Skelton out of ply and then cover it in something i haven't decided on yet for the outer hull perhaps thin ply but that might e a bit delicate.

My questions are does my current planned route work or is it doomed to fail and is making a fibreglass mould and doing it that way as difficult as it looks and if not are there any good guides on how to do it.

Thanks in advance
