Bending foam with the heat gun
The last two days I place the foam in frames and I used the heat gun to bent it. I had to do it this way because Fetske did not felt ok. It takes a bit longer than the method with the hot water. The sharper corners takes more time with the heat gun because you can not bent it to quick. I did put the heat guns under the foam in the highest position 600 C so I had a sort of a oven and good easily bent the strips. Tomorrow one meter to do on the front and a small strip on the stern. The horizontal strip on the bottom is 100kg/m3 the rest is 80. I did cut the vertical strip a few mm above the line and with block of wood and a hammer put it in place.
