How to get the best finish on a foam model

I have built a TwinStar (which is currently about 25 foot high stuck in a tree!!!) and now am thinking of building a Cargo. I would really like to get a nice smooth finish on these models. I was thinking of applying some paint (not sure which one??) mixed with some talcum powder (not sure what ratio??) - sand and repeat as often as is necessary to get a smooth finish. Then I want to paint the models gloss white with some gloss red markings (again not sure what paint to use here??). Has anybody got a magical recipe for this? If possible I would like the exact makes of the paints to use and where I can get it - I live in the UK.

Thanks a lot.

Let me now go and retrieve my broken TwinStar!!
