I had a flash of inspiration, and decided to make something original, hopefully I will be able to make this work.
What do you think would be the best way to waterproof this one, as I think it would be fun to fly it on water, after I get the kinks worked out.
I understand, I dont want to discourage from your efforts, they have just been doing these since the 40's, hate to see someone beat their head against foam for the basics.

The nice thing about a WIG, it needs weight to keep it from flying or flipping, you could do near anything to waterproof it. Foam safe epoxy and skim cote it, several cotes of the water based clears, low heat types of mono cote.
