Larry,

I agree, bigger is always cooler!

I have worked with the 1/2" blue foam. It is several times stiffer than the 1/4" bluecor or 5 mm depron. It doesn't have the skins so it doesn't weigh a lot more than 6 mm depron. You can also sand the LE round fairly easily.

It would make a very torsionally stiff wing. A simpletension style crossbrace similar to the flying W's could take up the landing loads. The stuff is pretty cheap, and widely available. $9 for a 4 x 8 foot sheet at Lowes.
