Balsa Wood

Light weight, easily cut and shaped, Balsa wood remains a popular modelling material. Our balsa comes from sustainable plantations.
Please note - Balsa wood is available from our shops only.
Humbrol is a name synonamous with British chemical manufacturing. Their balsa cement is a fast setting lightweight adhesive suitable for building free-flight model aircraft. As well as being great for balsa wood, this cement is also an inexpensive, good, general purpose quick drying glue for paper, card and wood.

Balsa wood is very soft and light with a coarse open grain, offering an excellent balance of strength and lightness. The density of dry balsa wood is about one third the density of other hard woods. Balsa wood is used to make very light, stiff structures in architectural modelling projects and for the construction of lightweight model aircraft. It is also a very popular material to use when making wooden floats for fishing, as it is low density but high in strength. Despite being very soft, balsa is classified as a hardwood and is the softest commercial hardwood available.
