    Hello
    I did my first attempt with balsafoam.
    Its not yet ready.
    For a 90mm figure from all in Scale called Oriental Lady of war.

    The project was over in about 50 minutes. This material is highliy recommended.
    I think I must do the next three week only dios,dios, dios, dios. everything with balsafoam.

    Looks quite good, so why the green smiley?

    Could you tell us a little more about how you worked with the Balsa Foam?
    And where one can get hold of it, preferably within the EU?

    Cheers

    Hello Stephan,

    Looks like we can find many uses for this 'new' material in our hobby.

    I second Janne's enquiry: where can we find it in the EU ?

    Thank you for sharing. (y)

    I worked only with a Spatula dont know the word. Balsa foam you can get in three hardness, for this I used nr. I but i think its too smooth.
    we worked also at www.gluetrain.de with this.

    Greyfunnelline is the importeur in Germany thank poch mahone I get it from there.
    Very fast an friendly this man.

    Balsa Foam had been around for 15 years or more that I know of,it is to coarse for my likings and find very little use for it,but there is another product that is a million times better named renshape it is like balsafoam but,does not fall apart and turn to dust,and without the million of air holes.Mrosko
