Cyparis spars

Postby Steve Mansell » February 14th, 2019, 8:40 pm

Hi all,
I would like to use cyparis for the spars on my latest build, as I have heard that it's lighter, stronger, and has closer grain than spruce.
Can't find it or suppliers on google, and was wondering where to obtain it. I'm located near Bromley, Kent, but I'm driving to Norfolk on Saturday so may be able to do a short diversion.

I need 1/8" x 1/2" , and in 4 or 5 foot lengths.
Cheers
Steve

I supposed you’ve tried Inwood models and Balsa Cabin ?

Hi Peter
Try Stuart Solomon he is a member of the LMA. Sorry I can't give you his number but Phil Clark at Fighteraces will be able to help you he only cuts metric sizes, but is very reliable.

Good luck

Dave
