Model making is the representation of a real model by means of a technical model that can represent the model with more or less precision, being able to focus on some or all aspects of the original model.
At Vicenç Piera stores we offer a wide range of balsa products.
Balsa wood is called balsa wood (Ochroma pyramidale), a tree that grows in the subtropical jungle of Ecuador, as well as in Central America and other South American countries.
Balsa wood (by other scientific names: Ochroma lagopus and Ochroma bicolor) is the lightest wood known, with a density of 0.10-0.15 grams per cubic centimeter, which makes it lighter than cork . It grows wild in the tropical forests of South America, especially in Ecuador, which exports it to several countries.
Balsa wood has, among other qualities: its great capacity for thermal and acoustic insulation, its low weight, its ease of being glued and the minimum movement of water between its cells. It is also used, worldwide, in model airplanes and architectural models. They are its characteristics:
Pale pink colors.
Light weight, and very easy to work (a saw and a file are enough).
It is easy to glue.
We have balsa wood in different formats and thicknesses.
The raft is widely used in the world of model making as it is a very light product that is cut and glued very easily.
