lonestar balsa, or national balsa, that or you can buy standard 3 or 4 inch sheets and join them to make skins.

I have used the skins from National Balsa for years.....very nice. His Intimidator Q500 is a fantastic kit too. I am building two of them right now

I get 6 inch sheets from A-K Models out of Iowa. So A complete wing of wood is about $10. Wood is good quality .
