Bugger! Thought you might say that. Only other option I can think of is carving a mold for fibreglass. That should be strong! Thanks for answering mate!

Towerhobbies won't ship the epoxy worldwide, anyone knows a place where they send that stuff worldwide?
Why do you put that layer of epoxy?

I'm sure they sell epoxy where you live. The stuff from Tower isn't anything special.

The epoxy is used to give the foam body a smooth surface.

I have been to a few shops and they have everything other than the epoxy. Other problem is that I don't know it's name in my language and maybe ask for a wrong thing.
So it used mainly for foam? I have got ABS plastic body so I really don't need it?

With ABS you won't need the epoxy. Good luck!
