Foam core wing repair help needed

Mix a big batch of 15 minute epoxy. Bend the wing enough to open the crack and slather in the pox. Brace it straight, wipe off the squeezed-out epoxy, and let dry. If it is balsa sheeted, cut the balsa back at an angle on bot hsides of the break, and insert a scarf piece, again using epoxy (most CA melts foam). Use spackling or Model Magic Filler to repair any dents in the foam. Dr.1 Driver "There's a Hun in the sun!"

I have a Midwest Cardinal Squire that has suffered a broken wing in shipping. It is a foam wing, and although it didnt break completely in half it is bent and damaged almost to the point of breaking completely.

any suggestions?

I'd be tempted to add micro baloons to the epoxy to lighten it up a bit, if yu have large gaps to fill, and possibly jigsaw a cut into the foam to put a brace or two in - maybe CF.

Otherwise as above.
