Default next build given already made wing

I have this wing I picked up for $20 at a hobby store. its a little over 5 feet. I was thinking of building a cool looking fuse, as in something other than a skinny stick plane fuse, and stab for it. Here are two planes I've already built that have character. they are the best candidates so far and it'll be a low wing plane since the dihedral appears to be for a low sing plane.

I have plenty 5s 5000 batteries and a G46 electric motor. I figure ill run as big a prop as feasable.

Mostly balsa stick and foam build. I have yet to determine the fuse length, but think maybe 70% of wing span to make it 3.5 feet or there abouts.

any suggestions, the little gem (white) or the red racer (yellow)

im begining to like the stick er, cough, box fuse construction on the red racer. besides the fuse nose curves up on the little gem making motor mount out of alignment on a low wing little gem. a box fuse with foam top tocarve out. sounds simple.
