Resources for Foam-Core Vac Bagging

I just got a few EPS foam cores for a ALES ship I was building - and I'm considering turning this into a warmliner instead and making these into foam-cored composite wings.

I've searched these threads for a while, but haven't found many resources on the techniques involved on vacuum bagging composite to a foam core... I know they're out there.

Got any threads in the back of your mind that could help me out? I don't want to be a "I hav these foam cors and please teach me how to vacum bag some carbon fiber to these thanks" like I've often seen, just trying to find some educational material

Thanks

I read the teaser on a RCG blog here, seems like exactly what I'm looking for, but now can't seem to find a place where they're still sold... the website that most of the pages link to is down.

I have a couple videos I produced that you may be interested in.

I will let George Voss's review he did for RCGroups speak for them.

If you do have any questions please don't hesitate to ask. If I don't know the answer I will refer you to wyomingwindworks!
