Without looking at the damage I would suggest to first cut out any rust or damaged metal. Then find a fellow Model Aer with a wire welder.Make a matching patch and crimp it with an offset tool and lap weld it, grind the weld,followed by a thin coat of bondo to dress it off. If the damaged area has detail to it then find ascrap body and cut that section out with a cutoff wheel to minimize distortion and then weld it in to your body. The area that you describe is not the normal area to fo bad.
If you're not experienced with leading I would not suggest it because if you do not get the acid neutralized it will cause damage later (that's coming from personal experience). Good luck either way you go.
