    No Problem

    One final tip, after some tests and help on this and the rcgroups forum - Copydex rules!

    just hold the item down and trace it lightly with the blade, move it and cut it. that's what I did...

    That plick & pluck foam is particular about the glue it likes - copydex gives great results but it does smell (latex, not solvent)

    One more pic of the roof that might be helpfull

    How do you use copydex? What's it look like when it's finished? My pluckin' foam is starting to fall apart...

    Thanks
