This is where I got my cloth for the last plane I built. I ordered it and it was here in a few days.

If you have any questions or special applications, ask for George. George Sparr has been giving seminars at Toledo for years on Composites and Vacuum baging. The guy at Lowes looked at me like I was from Mars when I asked how to thin the Epoxy to apply the cloth to the wing. Guess tech support for modelers isn't their forte. Modelers either.
