It could work safely but Foam and plastic is two different thing I dont want to melt the plastic.
I wish to have an answer from somebody who try it on plastic.

Airplane fuel ? Cox decal are not fuel proof ?

Cox decals fuel proof? Yeah...I don't remember a sticker sticking beyond the first pint of flying. They all got gummy at the edges before finally discoloring and/or falling off.
Forget ever getting one to stick once the model flew. I never got them clean enough again.

While I said it tongue-in-cheek, there is quite a bit of truth in this one.
