Default Sources for Composite Material

Gentlemen,
I've been out of the hobby for over 15 years and might be back at it making molds and parts. I'm familiar with CST but not much else as it has been so long.
Where are you guys getting your composite supplies these days? I'm in Southern California if it makes a difference.
Many thanks,
Nadim

Steve Thayer at thayercraft.com for cloth. I've been doing business with him for 20 years, and know of a bunch of modelers, and businesses who do so as well. For some specialty items I use CST and Fiberglast Products. I get West Epoxy from a local West Marine.

US Composites is a good source for many things. Their 635 resin is my go to choice for most lamination and gluing.

I agree that Thayercraft for fiberglass and other materials is number one. I just bought a bunch of G-10 from ePlastics. It is also amazing what you can find on Amazon.

I know it is in europe, but R&G composites should have a distributor in US...they are excellent, with a good site and wide choices and info.
