    Thank you to all who responded to my previous query concerning foam core construction.

    I have heard that common epoxies used in composite construction do not adhere to
    plastic films such as Saran wrap. Is this correct? If so is it feasible to employ it as a release agent when building a thin wall, non-structural component
    such as a cowling? That is, can I wrap a male plug made of styrofoam with Saran wrap, lay on the epoxy and glass, smooth and fill to desired finish, and
    then pull out the plug and add any internal bracing necessary to maintain its shape?

    Thanks for any comments.
