In the photos it looks like paint or vinyle? But its not!
The foam is inlayed! Makes a nice wing,a nice wing.

There is no secret! It is laser cut.

Looks pretty cool. Wish I had access to a laser Safe to assume you do

What are you gluing the inlays back in with? Just normal foam rated glue I assume. Is the inlays changing the structural integrity of the wing any? Done many tests on strength?

I use CA to glue the foam. The wing is pretty strong because of the two layers. Plus It has a C.F. spar inside.

What is that wing for? Is it the Citabria from 3Dfoamy?

I am almost finished with the fuse drawning.
It like inlay meets origami. Should be pretty cool.
I will post some photos.
