I apologize if this question has already been answered but I did do some searching without luck.
As some of you may know I am building the Mare Norstrum and haven't had the best success so far. However I'm perservering and am determined to finish a fine looking model. However, I have to "re-do" a lot of the wood work because my first attempt didn't turn out the way I wanted. Having said that, I'm running out of wood in my kit. I'm looking to purchase regular, off the shelf, model wood such as basswood, mahogany and walnut. I'm looking for strips 0.6 mm thick by 5 mm wide in basswood plus I need some 1.5 mm thick basswood sheet. I would also like to add to my inventory for other sizes and types.
Where in North America is there a place that has a good selection? I would prefer somewhere in Canada to avoid duty etc plus big freight charges and I would also prefer someone who sold metric sizes.
Any suggestions would be welcomed.
