Excellent idea thanks
yea I make all my planes from homemade foam board...... note build a really simple plane first because you probably will want to rebuild it... believe me first plane from homemade foam board === horrible look.... but now I am currently building a ms spitfire and it is soooo smooth and slick/sweet

aceboard update.
acetate 0.1 mm sanded lightly with 100 grit sandpaper.. glued on with wheatglue.
approx drying time 4 days at 89 %humidity (raining outside)
lighter and stronger than paper coated foam.. i covered only on side.. because the water won't shouldn't get in the plane
