Josh, that's the same method I use with the Lego's and it works really well. I do have one more idea to add but I need to take a photo before posting that.

Warhead that is just beautiful. You've taught yourself something that most people couldn't learn in an art school.

I'm experimenting now with some very small pilots. Maybe about 1/30 or so. I'm in the same boat as you. I need something that is light but also picks up the fine detail I want.
I have used Feather Light before and it does live up to it's name. Unfortunately the filler they use to make it so light also makes it prone to leaving bubbles in very small castings. It is not lighter than foam but does pick up more detail when it works right. The thing I don't like is the packaging. You have to dip it out of the cans to use. I actually store some in smaller screw top glass jars which make it easier to use.
