Question
How to finish foam for painting?

I am working on a 150% jetset44 F-18, and am looking for ways to finish it. I don't like the look of sanded and painted foam, and would like to get rid of that "foamie" look. I have debated covering with film, and fiberglassing, but are there any other techniques?
Thanks

Look for Freddies Secret Sauce. It works great.

Thanks! I will probably try the Secret Sauce. By the way, has anyone used the Wowplanes Liquid Sheeting?

I liked the way WP LS worked, even after a year on the shelf, it still performed as advertised.
