Hi Turtleman,
yeah, a tandem 2-seater fuselage sawn off to a suitable length
would look great but at the cost of sailplanes? Even wrecked ones?
As well use an antique Sheraton side table as a work bench, eh? 
Mind you, in the late 1940s Swallow (I think it was them) did make
a series of  sidecars out of moulded plywood droptanks from Mosquito
bombers. They had to quit when they ran out of  war surplus droptanks.
