Ian -
You asked about adhesives to use with foam.  I have always used plain old 
Rubber Cement and I have never had a problem with it separating.
I take two pieces of foam and liberally coat one side of each with rubber 
cement.  After the cement has become tacky, I carefully place the two pieces 
together, press them and hold them together for a few minutes.  I then set them 
aside to dry for at least an hour.  When they are dry, I trim them to size with 
a metal straight edge and a single edge razor blade or razor knife.

Thanks Tony thats what I had been using for my sheets, but on the stacked 
bodies, I wasnt having much luck with my scissors. I also suspect I need to 
look at a better glue as the adhesive I am using doesnt tend to hold well when 
I cut them..
