Default EPO Foam Warbird: Glassing and Painting

Has anyone tried glassing or painting the FMS warbirds? I was wondering if the Tamiya, Humbrol or Testors paint was compatible with the foam. Another idea I had was to glass the airframe and of course, then I suppose I could paint it with anything. Any experience with this?

Thanx, Mark

yes I glassed my Flyzone Corsair with 1/2oz cloth and I airbrushed it with water colors I got at Micheals. I first sanded the whole thing smooth to get rid of the ugly foam bumps. applied the glass let dry and airbrushed. almost finished.

Fireplug do you have any pics? What did you use for glass resin? Did it attack the foam?

Thanx, Mark
