As has been said wood is just pre-paper and thus is allowable. You tried and learned from your efforts; that is the main thing. Do you have pictures of the hull? I, for one, would like to see how it turned out.

Sure, ASHIGARA was the first try with MDF frames and balsa under hull plating, also KONGO is made this way and my present build AZUMA. See:

Do what you need to do. I built the F-105 from Oddball Productions and used a bunch of plastic 1:48 scale bombs because I couldn't get the paper parts to look anything like a bomb at that small of a scale. I used the paper fuel tanks, but plastic bombs and racks. It even earned 2nd place in a contest!

I used the Vinyl tires from a plastic kit on this 1/25ish build I did. I also used the roof mounted antenna as well. the tires I used because the paper ones just looked outa place. the Hubs and everything else are all paper though. the Antenna I used because it never had one in the original kit.
