Is Modeling Chocolate Strong Enough To Make A Plane Wing?

I would like to make a biplane for my father's birthday this month. (He's a pilot). I saw on an episode of Cake Boss, that Buddy said he made the wings for his biplane out of modeling chocolate. Do you think modeling chocolate is strong enough on it's own for the wings, or do you think Buddy used a really thin board wrapped with modeling chocolate? I'd prefer to use just the chocolate, but I was wondering if you could share your thoughts on this.

I think he covered something with the modeling chocolate.

I've heard that someone (here) used pastillaje and painted it too look like silver metal. Sorry I don't remember who, but it's someone here.
Good luck!!
