Re: Balsa wood

I'm also looking at getting some balsa. AMR sells balsa, however I just priced it at Balsa USA......I have no place locally so paying $20-$50 shipping is a part of life.

Deal with Don, he can custom cut sizes for you if you need a particular odd ball size, I got my white medium weight balsa from Don for my giant Concorde wings.
He is great guy with great service to deal with.
Keeping scale scratch building part of the hobby alive.
We'll build new kits or arfs for you and also rebuild your previously crashed models.

Re: Balsa wood

Ian, our Local Hobby Shop is pretty well stocked. A lot of their sales are to architectural/arts students, but for builders, John usually can work out a great bulk deal. If you pm me a list of what you need, I can talk to John, and see what it would cost, shipping from Halifax probably a lot cheaper for you.
