Re: FOAM

There are all kinds of foam. Styrofoam which is a Dow  trade mark (blue foam color is a tm too) is widely used generically. The florists foams are lower density and strength. The pour foams I have heard of are poly urethane based and in 2# density shape easily but are not dependable for core, too brittle and when hot wired produce poison gas. Pour foams can vary greatly within a pour.  Billet foam with the same chemicals and higher density can work well. It takes R&D and testing to prove. Following plans should be safe, given decent workmanship. Changes become much more experimental.

Aircraft Spuce still provides this foam. More expensive probably, but it is assured of being the right stuff.
