Model Airplane Balsa Parts source

I have been given an old RC Model Airplane Kit that is approximately 40 years old.

Manufactured by 'Top Flight Models, Inc.', it is completely BALSA. Although I am the first one into the box, not enough parts were included and I am now trying to locate a source of shaped Balsa Wood (5/16 X 9/16 leading edge material).

If you have a good local hobby shop (LHS) then go there first. You may be able to find some balsa at a craft store like Michaels or the non-RC Hobby Lobby stores, but it won't be high quality.

Check out Balsa USA, National Balsa, and Tower Hobbies all online.
