Thinking maybe a 400 grit to get a smoother surface on the foam.
Whats a good paint to use that anyone can recommend on here-please bear in mind i don't have access to a spray gun so i am stuck with the cheap alternatives.
Any help would be very much appreciated, can't wait to get her up and flying again-so easy and fun to fly.
thanks again fellas
I paint my foam planes with acrylic craft paint from Walmart with a brush. My Red Rippers was painted this way except for the cowl where I used a spray can of cheap paint from Walmart.
