How to build a real plane to RC?

#1
Hello everyone! I just recently got some flight training from buddy thats is a CFI.I wanted to build his plane as a RC and fly it at home,except I have never built a replica airplane.It is a 1962 Cessna 175 skylark.I would like to make it out of foamboard but still keep the fuselage rounded like the real plane if there is a way to do that.Thanks!

Cessna 175 built from 1958 until 1962 had the same airframe as the Cessna 172 of the same era. The difference was that the C-175 engine had a gear reduction to the prop, slightly different cowl & nose bowl for the gear case that you can duplicate with foam.
