Foam has some very interesting properties. Here is a foam Squirrel that is being passed around in a pub. This young lady is showing some writing that she and friends have added to the Squirrel.
See’s had no experience or coaching with handling of model planes. I was very impressed with the survival of this plane.
I the picture, she is stretching the winglets apart to make sure we can see the writing.
The plane got a lot of bending when it was being written on to. Not only did it not break or stress, it had good memory and came back to it’s original shape.
I know foam is not a traditional material but this is a serious benefit if it can survive this sort of manipulation.
She left the pub with the plane and I’m wondering what happened. I’m sure I’ll get a report sooner or later!
