Lone Star Balsa


Anyone know what has happened to Lone Star Balsa? They are shut down, they have my money, and I have no balsa!

This is very troubling! Its my favorite balsa supplier. I see the "temporary" in their announcement on their website.

The owner, Riley Wooten, is getting up there in years. Hopefully he's not down with something, at his age even minor things can quickly become major.

I got my money back today by filing a claim thru PayPal. Still don't know what has happened at Lone Star.

His kid tried to resurrect the company a couple of years after the fire. I tried one order and it was a disaster. All the above incidents happened after the reopen. Pretty sure the are left to history now.
