the compartment dividers look like they could be made of thinply. Take a look at your local hobby store that specializes in radio controlled airplanes. You might be pleasantly surprised at the variety of small dimension wood products they carry if there's a large enough population of hobbyists to support. I've got birch plywood downstairs that's only 1/8" thick and some more at 5/32". Used for fuselage and formers in larger scale planes it gets amazingly rigid when you lock pieces together with tab and slot contruction and the plywood pieces themselves are... well they're plywood! Just tiny.

I had some of that thinply and sanded it to 220 and then coated it with finishing epoxy to fuel-proof it. It was a tremendously durable finish to be sure and had a nice gloss to it. And you could spill methanol/nitro fuel on it and it didn't care! :)
