The way I did it for the MKII Camera Carrier was to use two flat
balsa sheets to make either end of the rectangular bay (wot the
camera lives in) and attach a pair of short lengths of BT60 (or
whatever) to them.
Then take a piece of cardstock (210gsm is enough) and wrap it around
the structure on one side, until you get a smooth-ish transition.
Unroll the card and mark out the contact points, and join the
dots/lines. Use this as a template to construct the shrouds.
Worked for me!
(If you can, it will be easier if you can round the corners of the
endplates a little.)
BTW - What are you going to be doing with it?
