    You may want to try sanding sealer. Easy to use and works great. Good base coat for anything you want to use on it.

    I made a sail out of real sail material that I got from a marine supplier. I ordered the lightest they had. So far it has lasted more than 40 years. Hope this helps

    It's funny you are thinking about this. It's been on my mind especially since I found out my heart is not doing well. If I knew someone close, I would give them all my stuff. I will probably advertise for someone who would appreciate all my tools and models and just give it to them.

    The same is true here in the states. There is much less than there used to be. And the ones remaining tend to cater to a special group. Except for online, very hard to get a lot of things. Even the online stores seem to be less and less.
