My opinion (haven't started the fuselage yet) is that you want to get the wings out of the way first. If you think you'll work them in parallel, it might not happen. The wings involve a lot of "grunt" work like deburring, which just takes a lot of time and dedication to repetitive tasks.
I have the light at the end of the tunnel on the wings, and while it has certainly been educational, it is quite repetitive. I'm looking forward to the fuselage, which seems more interesting to me.
Not that the wings are boring, it's just a lot of repetition (see a theme here?)
But maybe having the fuselage to work on simultaneously would offer a reprieve, however, I think it could turn into an escape and result in the wings being finished in more time than necessary.
