Default Want to buy Color Tex fabric covering.

I'm building a 1/3 scale Super Cub and have the wings and control surfaces covered with Carl Goldberg Color Tex fabric covering, it is great stuff. The problem is, I still need to cover the fuselage and don't have any more. If anyone has 2 or 3 rolls they would be willing too sell, I'm a buyer. I would buy 3 rolls of the 72" or one roll of 15 feet.
If anyone knows of a source I would appreciate knowing about it.

Great Planes told me it was no longer made. Too bad, it was great stuff!

Thanks,

Color Tex, World Tex, and Solar Tex are all the same, it just depends on what manufacturer you purchase it from.

Thanks, I believe you are right. I think I have found a supplier at Happy Hobby on the internet. They say it's exactly the same as the Color Tex.

Yes, there texture/material is the same but the colors are not. You may have a problem matching colors if you change brands but, if color is not a problem, they are identical.

Thanks Rodney, I planed on painting it anyway, I have the correct paint already mixed.
If my memory serves me correctly, I think the product I have used in the past was made in the UK. It is the best as too shrinking tight and staying there. I have been flying a 1/4 scale
J-3 with a YS120 in it, covered in it for twelve years and has never changed.

Agree, the tex's are very good. I use lots of Solartex from BalsaUSA. IMHO the ...tex's are the easiest of the coverings to apply and they last and last.
