Next time you're in Ace Hardware or similar type store, take a look for "Lightweight Spackling Compound". This is a very light weight filler that is very easy to sand and shape into what ever configuration that is required. My 1/2 pint container is 10 years old, and I'm still using it. When it gets a little thick, just add a few drops of water to it.
It really helps to slightly wet the balsa wood or foam before putting this stuff on. After drying, it has the same consistancy or strength as the typical foam products used in our models.
If you want a much stronger surface, wait for at least 24 hours, then place a few drops of thin CA on it. And make sure the CA is foam safe if using on any foamed areas. Once you've placed CA on this stuff, it is much harder to sand.
