Sold
Fiberglass for modeling, trade glider wanted

I have a few rolls of fiberglass matting. Several feet on a roll some are 100 feet and some 100 yard rolls. there is alot of 3/4 oz and 3 oz and alot of 6 or 8 oz. Im not going to unroll these to measure them but I can weigh them if that helps. There are several hundred dollars in glass here and it will build several planes and make thousands of repairs! I will sell this but would also like to trade for a decent dlg or nice sailplane. I can ship these but some are pretty heavy. I am in central texas and can travel to interesting places to facilitate a trade.

Looks like cloth, not mat! (cloth is much better for model airplanes)

Mat looks like this:

It's usually intended for use only with polyester resin and is meant to build up thickness fast, but isn't nearly as stiff or strong as fiberglass cloth.

yes

Most is cloth but I have mat and roving also but it is too thick. I used the wrong wording. There are no pics of the roving or mat. I have a 50 pound roll of 36" wide roving and a 50 pound roll of 18" wide roving if interested. The mat I have is folded and there is about 10 pounds of that. thanks for the correction. The rolls in the pics are cloth.
