Gas delta wing?

I have been flying my little foam board delta wing with a small blue wonder motor. At the club i go to i recently seen a guy with a delta wing about the size of mine that was made of foam board and he had put a nitro engine on it. Well I have a shot at a .10 size nitro motor and want to try to put it on my delta wing some time. The reason i made this post is because i want to know if this is just a stupid idea or if it would work. Delta wings wing span is 22 inches and is 21 inches from front to back.

Well glow fuel isn't good with foam, it will melt the airframe. If you could get an exhaust deflecter so no goo got on the foam, it would work.

If the foam is covered or painted it would be fine. I have several .40 or .60 planes with foam wings that are either covered with film or taped.
