Default Sheeting Foam

Pro Bond polyurethane looks like honey and is just a little thicker. It smoothes out nice and thin with an old credit card. All that is required is a consistant thin film on the balsa. Mist the foam core with water and apply the glue coated balsa. I do not even edge glue my balsa sheets any more. All I do is make sure they fit together well and tape them together. The tape goes on the outside of course. When the glue kicks and starts to foam it will creep in to the joints of the sheets and glue them together solid. It makes for an invisible seam that sands as easy as balsa. Ever try to sand a CA glued sheet joint?
