your planes look great! One question tho. how would I get the rounded look with the dollar tree foam? where are you getting the MPF? does it just bend like that?

You just roll it over a tube or even a broomstick. Paper off, of course! I think the build threads show some pics of the forming.

On.the MPF, we actually sell it. I and two other guys formed Model Plane Foam, inc. And sell MPF from this site: modelplanefoam.com
MPF forms about as easily as dtf. In both cases you just take your time and roll a bit at a time.
