Default Check with some companies in the know first.

Here are some good links to companies that sell composites, and also have freely downloadable examples, video clips, and tutorials:

http://www.fibreglast.com

http://www.acp-composites.com/

http://www.cstsales.com/articles_for_model_builders.htm

I recommend browsing these sources first, since they've all been in the business for a long time, and are quite helpful. Here on RCU, opinions vary widely about what resin to use, what fabrics to use, what fillers to use, and all the details of the many composite methods available. The web sites above have the serious technical information you need as a "primer".

I also have several composite-related tutorials on how to make plugs and molds on my non-commercial web site, at http://www.nextcraft.com

I do business with CST for my supplies. I think these guys missed out because of a typo on the previous post. Good people to deal with.
