Where's the best place to buy Monokote, Oracover, or Ultracote?


I'm going to be covering a large sailplane (100"), and assume it will take 4 six foot rolls. I know the stuff's not cheap. So... go any great sources? I don't even know where I can go to "see" the various colors? Help?

Also, www.hobby-lobby.com/discontinued.htm has some rolls of Oracover on clearance.

Most covering products are 24+ inches wide and most 100" wings are far less than 12" chord. You probably only need 2 rolls for 100" ship. The Majestic at 110" with the V-Tail used 2 rolls of product and left me sizeable scraps for repairs.

Here's a source for color charts. http://www.top-flite.com/monokote/monokote.html
