Try www.wicksaircraft.com. They have both butyrate, and nitrate dopes. You can also get a free catalog of all kinds of good building supplys. John.......

Sig also has dope. I don't know the manufacturer they get it from. Glad to see someone using the good stuff again. Just be extra careful with the nitrate. Very flammable. Butyrate somewhat more fuel proof.

If you are talking glow, Nitrate is not fuel proof at all.
Airports sometimes carry Randolphs Butyrate. When you start painting colors, check with Brodak Mfg., they carry a Randolph based butyrate that is specially formulated for models. The colors have more pigment so it covers with fewer coats.
If you have not painted with dope before, you can put butyrate over nitrate but not the other way around.
There are lots of other tips. You probably can search for them on the net.

Be sure to check www.brodak.com for Brodak dope. John has this made by Randolph for model use. It has a ton of solids in it, needs a good bit of reducer. It dries much faster than Sig and is more consistent in color and quality. Rubs out to a gorgeous shine if you're into elbow grease.
