I think khodges touches on a critical point, the scale of the model, a big model requiring a more careful solution to look convincing than a little one. When I look at the photos of the tail, the section looks round, so khodges idea would work well although rather labor intensive. The photo of the wing looks like the section is more triangular, where wood sections on a smallish model would be just fine. Also, is the model generally stand-off scale or totally museum scale?
If one is motivated enough, he could find an actual plane to look at but the answer lies in the OP's goals for his model. Just because some of us are anal retentive doesn't mean the OP is.
