My local signwriting shop (in Cheshire) was happy to sell me 8'x4' sheets of white 4mm for £10 after i told them it was for airplanes. My friend works in a supermarket supply depot and gets me occasional 2'x2' sheets of 2mm in slightly used condition for free.

Hi Nick,

Could you please post details of your local Correx supplier as I live in Ayrshire,Scotland and have been having real difficulties locating a supplier. Do they stock 2mm thick Correx?

Hi Nick,

Thanks for the quick response, I would be looking for roughly the following

4mm - 8 pieces 48"x24" flutes running along 48" dimension (or 2 - 8'x4' sheets) colour ?

2mm - 6 pieces 48"x32" flutes running along 32" dimension (or 2 - 8'x4' sheets) colour ?

hi iain,

i know they do 4'x3' in all colours (red,blue,gree,yellow,white etc) but i dont know the flute direction, i would presume it would be in the 4' direction i have only bought 2.5' sq sheets so far.

i think from memory the 4'x3's are £4.25ish a sheet. i havent got a price for the 8'x4' cos they wont fit in my car

cheers

Hi Nick,

Could you give me their Phone No. and I will give them a ring and try to get the relevant information.
I need the flutes in 48" direction for the SPA3D wing, 4'x3' seems an odd size for them to cut out of 8'x4' sheets economically (or else they sell a lot of very small pieces) so maybe they are using metric sheets or something.
If I get their No. I will try to find out.

Iain.

i will did it out again, the wife has filed the piece of paper under 'bin' i think. they are not in the yellow pages, i got hold them from a signwriters. i think they might well be in metric sizes cos the sheets i bought are 705mm sq. as i said i had to open an account becouse i wanted to put it through the bussiness but i suspect they would deal with the public.

where abouts in ayrshire are you?? i fly with CVF at the brand spankin' new field which your welcome to visit with your spad's.

i am also just starting to produce artf spad's, PBF and hopefully in the next couple of weeks the spa3d.

cheers

Thanks for the invitation, I live in Ayr and fly mostly with the Girvan club at Maybole.
I presently have a Ciggy Pack, SPA3D (2 Aileron servos) and a Spadstick under construction.
With regard to your other post I tried elevator/flap mixing on the SPA3D but now have it disabled, used full size servos mounted on the wing in the middle of the ailerons with horns the full width of the ailerons. You may (almost certainly will) have difficulty locating the correct size of aluminium channel for the fuse, I just used 15mmx15mmx1.5mm channel from B&Q (keeps the weight down a bit as well) and mounted the rudder and elevator servos on a cutting board mount, with an SC40 the weight with empty tank was 4lb 1/2oz.
Sean Reid from the Hamilton club used to do ARTF Spads under the name of Plastic Aeroplane Company, but his web site has been down for some time now so I think he may have given it up.
If you could manage to dig out the number of your supplier I would be much obliged as I have been going to Manchester for my Correx, but they only have tranlucent or black which gets a bit boring and they are not the best colours for visibility.

Thanks
Iain.

Default Hi, Nick.

If you need a lot of Coroplast, you can choose to import from China. I used to buy Correx sheet in Jianxin Plastics in Dongguan, China. The price is very cheap and the quality is very good.
Grace
best regards
