make the mdf one,include the brackets and all the cut outs,paint the outside-try to use release tapers to ease the mould off,bunnings sell fibre glass kits and matting.to stiffen it up use wire mesh,3-4mm will do it,or you can target areas and thicken it to 4-6mm,use cups-plastic or card board as moulds.
