Before I Forget Wipe the Depron with Rubbing alcohol, that will remove the release agent that is used when making the foam, and tape and paint will stick better to the foam.

I checked out the white Depron prices. Way to rich for me. I smash them too much and too often to afford the nice stuff.
I built my "5EZP" F-18C with some white Depron from Grayson Hobby. It was pretty nice foam. But also too expensive.
Also my short attention span and need for immediate gratification makes using epoxy impossible. So I guess it's still hot glue and burnt fingers for me.
Dow blue-core can be wavy but the Owens-Corning Pink fan-fold is flat and around here it's also cheaper.
I'll have to try the alcohol treatment. Thanks.
