We’ve recently expanded our selection of Rocketry Supplies by adding products to help you build and finish your rockets.
Aerogloss Balsa Fillercoat is a sealer and filler for paper, fabric, and woods such as balsa and basswood. Balsa Fillercoat is lightweight and it dries quickly. Applied to balsa, it fills the grain and is easily sanded to create a smooth finish. Balsa Filler coat is available in 1 ounce jars as well as 1/2 and 1 pint cans. Currently, the small jars are unavailable, so we are stocking the large cans.
Balsa Fillercoat is often used with Aerogloss Sanding Sealer to help achieve a smooth, catalog-quality finish on model rocket fins and balsa nose cone. For the best results, apply a few coats of Fillercoat (letting it dry then sanding between coats) then add two coats of Sanding Sealer (again letting it dry then sanding between each coat).
We don’t have the Sanding Sealer in our catalog right now, but is on order. It should be available from our web site soon.
Alpha Abrasives’s Ultra Fine Waterproof Finishing Set is an assortment of reusable, ultra-fine grit sand papers. The set contains one sheet each of 320, 400, 600, 1000, 2000, 4000, 6000, and 12,000 grade sand paper. The sheets are waterproof so they can be used for wet sanding and are easier to clean for re-use.
We’ve also added adhesives, decal-making supplies, and masking tools. Please visit our online model rocket store to see our entire selection of Model Rocket Building and Finishing Supplies.
