I read on one of the electric web sites about using watered down elmers white glue and ordinary brown parcel paper. The kind that is thin like christmas wrapping paper! This method was offered as a substitute to balsa sheeting. After the glue dries, it is supposed to be easily sandable. I don't have experience using it but it is supposed to bo really light and makes the foam more rigid. I plan on giving it a whirl when opportunity arrises.
