Can anyone recommend a good newsgroup or other resource for composite building?

There is a section on composit building on this forum but nothing specific.

If it is to do with the jabiru airframe, I have a dvd with a wealth of information on building a composite sk/sp/up airframe as well as the j400. The dvd was put together by jabiru au and ST Aviation.

Happy to copy it and and pass it on ...

My interest in a composite newsgroup is for my J230 I am building. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be many active builders on this forum.

I would like to see the DVD you mentioned. Would you be willing to ship a copy to the US? I'd be happy to send you some shipping costs via PayPal.

No prob, happy to copy and send you a copy of the DVD. It has lots of useful infor which likely to be applicable to all jabiru aircraft. PM me your details. I presume postage will be around $5.00 for a large letter (no tracking). Price increases substantially with tracking but IMHO it would be an overkill.

Browsing through the photos on the DVD, I found one that shows a header tank mounted in the pillar between the front and rear door of a J400. The photo in question is \Build Photos\Puka build 30.11.03 018.jpg. I'm interested in mounting my J230 header tanks in the pillars. Do you or anyone else have any info on header tank shown in the photo? I'm curios on how well they worked and if they can be purchased or custom made.
