Nice looking planes everyone!
Any problems with adhesion on the EPO foam? I've had some problems with EPO as the paint doesn't stick like EPS.
Zen thinking * It's rebuildable till it fits back in the box. **

Re: Just had to paint that Habu

Yeah, the Kylon Fusion paint is advertized to adhere at the molecular level on plastic, well, it doesn't melt the foam as other paints do, and it "sorta" sticks to it, but if you want to strip the paint, just put masking tape over it and peel it off as the paint does not truly bond to the surface. If I ever do this again, I might try spraying on a primer first and see what happens.....
