A comprehensive guide to the use of expanded plastic foam materials in aircraft modelling. This manual quickly takes the newcomer to foam building techniques up to expert level. Foam is a relatively recent addition to the range of materials used to make model aeroplanes, and many modellers are still not familiar with the necessary information and techniques. The author describes the choice of foam, the materials for strengthening and covering, and tools and glues to create not only wings and fuselages, but also cowlings, mouldings and much more besides. This revised edition of David Thomas's book has been extensively updated by Sid King, who has a wide experience of foam modelling and foam component fabrication, both as a hobbyist and commercially. Many new tricks and techniques are included, plus the latest information on the many new materials currently used. The book contains a wealth of useful information for new projects and repairs, and scratch-building from foam.
