The alcohol will make the hot glue release from the foam, if you aren't comfortable with this, you can practice it on some foam or just a little part of your plane.

I take it you recommend using hot glue then? Not a bad idea. It might be difficult though to apply the glue and attach both sides before it hardens. That said, the foam is flexible enough that I could probably get away with doing the nose then the tail.

Would you happen to know if if contact cement detaches from foam when wet with isopropyl alchohol?
