Balsa Packs - Humbrol
The secret to balsa wood's lightness can only be seen with a microscope. The cells are big with very thin walls, so that the ratio of solid matter to open space is as small as possible. Unbelievably, balsa is classed as a hardwood and has exceptional strength to weight properties. It's the lightest wood available making it perfect for aviation projects and creating lightweight models.
