To some extent you can vacuum bag anything. Full size sailboat hulls are vacuum bagged (with very thick layup), I'm sure there are other large scale industrial uses for vacuum bagging.

One can vacuum bag, glass, kevlar, carbon, wood, etc. I don't think the capabilities of vacuum bagging will be the limiting factor in the thickness of a model airplane layup.

Think of vacuum bags as a simple method for creating a large amount of pressure on an object.
