Does anyone have a source in the US for Flexibark or rubberized horsehair? Or an online source of an overseas retailer carrying these items?

Thanks
Peter

Peter, the only place I've seen them available is in the UK at a place called: 4D Modelshop
They carry both items there - online shopping available.

That''s one of the hottest links I ever found. Really professional stuff. These are the guys who make models for movies, architects, etc... I feel such a (++) compared what these guys do. So much to learn, so little time... !

Argh!
4D is a great site, but after putting my order in, I found out that it will be GBP 17 to ship GBP7 worth of stuff across the Atlantic!
I can't see spending something like $40 for a couple pieces of horsehair and a jar of Flexibark.
I can't believe no modeling company in the US sells this stuff
Have to start calling upholstery shops for the horsehair,
Any substitutes for the flexibark?
