+1 to that!
Epoxy and cocktail sticks are my friends on the foamies. I dread crashing my balsa / ply Spit as I think I'd just end up with matchsticks!
But now that I have patched the MX2 and got her flying nicely, I would like to return her to something like her original glory, so a new cowl would be nice. I can also see my epoxied tail wheel being a frequent repair, with an ever increasing blob of epoxy....so a new one of those would be good too.
