Foamy building beginners guide.
Ok, so I am newer to rc planes, and I got a few questions on foamy building.
What are the different foams and their advantages/disadvantages?
What are the best type of adhesives to use/temperatures on hot glue guns?
Are there any other tips/threads on foamy advise for building?
Please feel free to expand and add what ever you like. You don't have to answer all the questions in a massive post (although it would be sweet) just answer what you feel comfortable answering.
Thanks a ton for helping out me and the beginner community.

First off you will find TONS AND TONS of information in the "Foamies (Scratch Built) forum, along with unlimited amounts of free plans!
The two typical foams you see around here are either the blue foam you find at lowes (FFF) or Depron which you will typically find at hobby shops or online. I have never used depron, but I've built a few models out of the blue foam and its great to deal with. Just dont use non-foam safe CA on it or it will eat it away!
I typically use Epoxy on my models or gorilla glue. Both work very well.
