You can use spray paint as long as it's a water based paint if it anything other than EPP. Color packing tapes also will work fine.

The best glue I found for any kind of foam is: http://www.rcfoam.com/product_info.php?products_id=1243
It's fast bonding, can be used as glue or as contact and stay flexible. Stay away from epoxy for foam, it's easy to ad extra weight with epoxy.

I havenít painted or colored planes much
But I just seen this article on yahoo
http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/this-cou...173841593.html

Itís a 3d pen, it can draw 3 dimensional objects, we could possibly add new scale detail to our planes, and it could potentially make designing things from paper a little easier by copying a drawing and seeing how it looks before building it.

I ripped off my own scheme Actually whatever stencils Ive used last are the easiest to use, especially when using manilla folders.

I went to Michael's last week and got a star punch and using that on painters tape I was able to make white stars pretty easily on large painted areas
