MODEL ENGINES SPRUCE
Model Engines have introduced an awesome range of high quality spruce sticks in a great range of sizes.
Spruce is a straight grained timber that is stronger than balsa, yet almost as lightweight. 
Spruce had been used as a spar material in full sized aircraft since the dawn of flight and is equally useful in modelling.
It can be used for spars in wings, stringers in fuelages of planes and hulls of boats. It is also a wonderful material for building achitectural models.
