What Kind of Styrofoam?

In cutting out one's own wings with battery charger and Nicrome wire, what kind of foam is best? If it's not the hardware store's insulating foam, where do you get it?

Sometimes I go down to the Sears store and check their dumpster.. Most of their new appliances are packed in foam. For good dense foam, check the building supply stores.

Yeah. 48 x 96 x 2" Could do a foam wing for an old timey free flight!
Would that construction insulation Styrofoam be good for wire cut foam wings?

You should try the scratchbuilt foamy forum, lots of info already there. Probably a better place to post questions as well.
