1" foam as bulkheads?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hello, I am wondering if I can use 1" thick pink foam for the bulkheads in my giant trainer. I am sheeting the inside sides of the fuselage with 1/8" lite-ply. I would think the foam would be strong enough, given that this isnt an aerobatic airplane, to hold the fuselage together. I want to see what people on here think before I go putting this together

If I should use wood, what kind? plywood? basswood? The dimensions of the airplane are: 110" span, 81" long. If you need more dimensions, you can find them under the thread on my giant trainer in the giant category.

Also, will the sheeting be enough on the inside sides? I was thinking about making a triangular truss to run along the sides instead of the sheeting, but since I did the sheeting maybe I should put the triangular truss on the top and bottom? What makes the most sense?
