EPO foam crash repair help

Hey guys need help.

I have crashed both my Flyzone Corsair and Dynam Albatross. Both are repairable but the noses are pushed in slightly and bent. I don't wanna right them off. Can anyone tell me how I can pull the noses out and straighten them out?

Thanks in advance

Rob

Groovejet has the answer. Yes, hot water should return the epo to the original shape.

You'll get more response in any of the warbird threads that are based on EPO models. But, groovejet gave you the correct answer....there are different methods, probably best to post some pics in one of those threads to get steered in the right direction for your specific type of damage.
