Any good hobby shop that deals with r/c planes should have a good selection of
different weights and weaves of fiberglass, as well as a decent selection of
epoxies.

Failing that, try places that sell boats (real ones).  They should have the
GOOD stuff (read: expensive) there.

Also, read the FAQ.  There are several fiberglass suppliers listed.  Don't have
the direct URL, but there is a link to the FAQ at www.rocketryonline.com.

Hope this helps

I started using West Systems epoxy with RC gliders and am still using
it with rockets.  It's somewhat thinner than the epoxy used as glue
and is ideal for fiberglassing rockets, etc.  If your local hobby
shop doesn't have it, try a boat shop.  That is what it was originally
marketed for.  It is NOT a 1:1 mix like most things you find in a
hobby shop.  I use their little pumps so that you just need to put
the same number of squirts of each part.
