I've ordered some 4oz fiberglass to roll a ballast tube. I've already got the copper pipe and balsa dowel. (see the excellent "ballast 101" thread in the slope forum...)
Still have to go to a car tire repair shop to get some old lead. I've got a camping stove and a cheap fleamarket laddle to melt and pour me some copper jacketed lead pellets.
