Data
Building Materials..where to Buy Database

Seeing there are many questions asked on the Australia forum where to get this and that in regards to building and repairing material for RC that hobby shops dont stock. Things like fibreglass supplies, foam supplies, glues and the like.

I would like to start this thread and list the products and places that you can go and buy materials that are not a hobby shop (hobby shops are OK if that shop is the only one that sell a product, only one hobby shop in Melb seems to stock Filiment tape for foamies)

So if you could list the product, place, address/contact/phone, approx price, type of business (wholesaler, Retail shop, online, private etc) and if they take phone/email orders with delivery and I will list them in the second post in order of product and state

example

Product: Vise PU Glue
Place: Bunnings Wharehouse
Contact/Address http://www.bunnings.com.au
Approx Price: $14 for 250ml
Terms: Cash, EFT, Cards
Type of bussiness: retail shop
Phone/email orders: NA
Delivery: NA

Vinyl tape

Where is the best place to buy vinyl tape for model trimming or is it just the same as electrical tape?

Having asked in 10 stores for vinyl/trimming tape I couldn't find this tape!. Super Cheap, Autobarn, repco and everything in between didn't carry it. Has anyone bought this stuff from a particular store in East Sydney.
Please feel free to name drop before duct tape is used.

I found good carbon bits from Precision Aerobatics.
horns, flat sheets etc.
http://www.precisionaerobatics.com/accessory.aspx
Most of the horns are too big, but if you want small ones, you can order the CF horns for the mini Katana.
cheers
