When building up sheets of pink or blue foam for a large nose cone or transition, what do folks use to bond the sheets together? Do you rely on bonding each sheet to the mandrel, or to each other or both?
ALso I assume you put a plywood plate across the bottom. Bonded with the same stuff?
And the mandrel? 1" dowel? Heavy duty motor mount tube (perhaps to be an electronics bay)? Any barbs, wires, or dowels through the foam for extra strength?
I was going to use laminating epoxy (System3, Raka) but realized I'd need a LOT of the stuff and thought I'd check to see if there is something better. Maybe beads of Liquid Nails or other caulk type product? Hot melt glue? Titebond? Duct tape? Cow Snot?
Finally, any suggestions other than the obvious fiberglass for covering large foam parts? Any one ever monokote them?
