Your scrap balsa and ply


I do a lot of scratch building and am always on the lookout for unused balsa, bass and light plywood. Many generous folks have offered me their scraps for the cost of shipping, but I don't mind paying a fair price. But, for the giant-scale projects I work on (and because I fly so badly and am always repairing/rebuilding), I cannot afford LHS rates. Just PM me with what you have. I'm located in Spring, TX. Thanks for looking - David

Thanks for the advice, Sagoman. I do buy from them frequently as well as the local stores. Maybe it's just the "green" in me, but I like the idea of using stuff that may end up getting thrown out eventually. I know that I had boxes of leftovers in a closet for years before I got back into modeling. I have been able to put several hobbiests' leftovers to good use and it makes me feel good because balsa and other exotics like it are a dwindling resource.
