Hey there all,
The tool that I most use by far is a hot glue gun. They are very cheap and an investment that you will not regret, I assure you! Click Here
As most of you will be starting out on foamies I recomend investing in some toothpicks, as these are the ultimate way to quickly patch up any aircraft at the field. Click Here
Another great tool is a good set of scissors or Stanley knife, useful for modifying those little bits on any foamie aircraft. Click Here
And the final great thing to repair anything is obviously some more foam. This is great for making more permanent changes to the aircraft once the batch job with toothpicks starts to fall apart! Click Here
Until next time,
Jamie
