Pure Glider?

I love the scale lines on this model. I know it isn't perfect, but it looks pretty darn good. As it is a scale glider, I am not a fan of the prop on the front. Has anyone converted theirs to a pure glider? Perhaps shaping a block of foam to replace the spinner? Or what I have done in the past is just fill in the spinner with expansion foam. Once filled, fill the remainding divets where the prop would come through with plastic model filler, then sand and paint. Works great, and looks pretty sharp. I love scale gliders, but I dont like electrically boosted scale gliders unless it is an RMS set-up or some other scale propulsion system.
