Cellulose dope
« on: June 15, 2012, 05:16:26 PM »

Hi.

I need about 300 mls of clear non shrinking dope in order to make some sanding sealer.

Other than the obvious, model shops in particular, where might I get some from?

Don't mind having to buy a larger quantity but not prepaired to pay what seems rather high model shop prices.

I know that they only charge what their suppliers rrp is, but surely it must be possible to get it elsewhere at a more economical price.

Mike.

Mike,
Have a look at http://www.shop4glue.com/cellulose-dopes-shrinking-non-shrinking-thinners-and-sanding-sealer-40-c.asp

Don't know how prices compare and possibly postage costs may make it uneconomic.
Best time to buy is at one of the shows.

We do shows for most things....just not that many this time of year!, we mainly do shows for kitcars, boats, model boats, caravans, model planes, wood work, model engineering etc , mostly over the autumn, winter and spring with only a few summer shows this year while we are setting up the new factory.

I  can vouch for Five Star being a good supplier.
The products I've had over the counter are as described and very reasonably priced.
Also you get a free chat - they never seem to be too busy to talk you through something.
So I'll be going back for more stuff soon O0
