I think you have the right idea but the wrong tool, a planer would tend to tear out your material and leave a rough unusable end product. A sander would be a much better choice especially on made like a planer, and with a solid not soft roller. Check out Grizzly, they have some sander made to the same general order as a planer with a solid roller for about the same price as a planer. These would work much better on soft material such as foam and balsa and would give you an idea as what to look for in other machines. JMO
