Default How to seal pink foam to use glow fuel

Hello Everyone.

Im scratch builiding a 40 size glow powered trainer out of pink foam.

Im not intending to sheet it with balsa, or fiberglass it.

Is there any method to seal pink foam in order to be able to use glow engine.

Kind regards.
VĂ*ctor Arreola.

I've used "Helmsman" with good results. Some types of PU would also probably work too. Whatever you decide on, be sure to try it out on a piece of scrap foam first. ................. George K.

Water based "Polycrylic" should work great.Mix a good amount of Talc(Baby Powder)with it,and You can easily sand it to a nice smooth finish.
