    What do you have to loose? Its crashed now so trying to fix it is a great option. If you can't really pull it off then you still have a crashed airplane.
    The real secret to the rebuilt is don't be scared to cut out the broken plywood. Also go all the way to a defined point so you can measure and rebuild back to what it looked like in China! Pick a former, gear plate, wing tube, whatever to build from. Just chose a spot that will stay and measure everything from there. Another tip is buy one of these suckers. http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXK699&P=SM
    You can get them at Home Depot. They take about 99% of the work out of chopping out broken plywood.
    With a little imagination you will have that fixed in no time.
