    Hi bobatrooper,
    sorry I din't get back to you . .
    YOur problem is simple, and easily fixed. Grab some Locktite superglue (not gel!!!!!) and dab it onto the foam. press an hold for about a minute, it should hold great.

    Alot of people thing this is a rip, and it isn't, the scope is cast seperate.

    If you want to add or adapt the paint, use a decnt acrylic paint. I recommend Createx brand airbrush paints. The stick to the foam well, and have a great elasticity, even in thin coats!

    let me know if you have anymore questions! I'll try to check in here more.
    Thanks!
