Questions about my wally B-36...I'm new to foam.

This is progressing slowly, I also have a 44" ws airtractor I'm piddling with while I wait for a new charger. (long story)

Just wondering whether anyone can tell me of something lighter to use as filler on my wingroot to fuse joint? I don't relish the thought of a quarter inch of spackle!!
I was also thinking about a way of attaching some dummy jet pods to the outer wings in such a way that they will hang on securely after hand launching, but detach, or "give" on landing.
Any ideas? (May never get that far..who knows?)

I'm waiting to get the first flight (or more likely, powered glide) before I finish the 6 engine nacells and paint the upper wing.

How in the world does carving out a 1" section of foam result in a square foot of foam 'fluff'?

One more thought. Have you noticed that with the added taper of the wally glider wing , it has an almost C-47 type taper?
