Can anybody tell me if bows or warps can be removed from MPF with an iron? Building a couple of Kens' Zeros and some of my foam is a bit wonky!

I have had limited success trying to flatten foam. The best i heard was gpw's method. He put the foam on a flat surface, under a glass plate and sat outside in the Louisiana sun. Tough to do in a MI/OH winter! If the un-flatness is in pieces to be laminated, then just go ahead and laminate them, using weights or clamps to keep everything flat. The waves will be gone. If it is on a wing or tail, you can try an iron (i haven't yet) or heat gun. It is tricky to overbend just the right amount, but i have done it.

Thanks Springer, I also have an idea or two so I'll just wing it (no pun intended) on this one. Grateful for your response and I hope the cold winter finds all you folks of SEMFF well. Steve

Between a couple of pieces of glass in the oven for 10 minutes at 200 degrees F will do the job.
