Bit more playing to see what the outer engine pod would look like. Need to tweak it around a bit more and obviously the finished version will be sanded to shape but it's a reasonable start...

How much does the pod weigh? Is it hollow on the inside or what percent infill?

Around 30g without the motor, 80g with so not massively heavy. I went for 30% infill as it should be strong enough (tested to hold 1.5kg before failure).
I was considering 3D modelling it and printing the entire pod out but the Depron outer is a slightly easier route for me with my limited modelling skills and somewhat lighter too.

I would agree entirely that printing a complete nacelle sounds nice but just printing the load carrying bits and then covering in a foam makes better use of the materials.
It is after all the principle of how the full size was done although in that case steel beams and tubing.
