I think there are two issues here - the convention to which the wood is cut, and then the tolerance of the cutting.

All good advice, thx. (I did previously enquire about attitude-reassignment procedures but the NHS is a bit stretched at present and going private would wipe out my lifetime budget for the hobby!) In the meantime...
- Mantua carry all the usual metric thicknesses (in 1000mm lengths I need for each wing) but it'd be a three hour round-trip to go in and select for density.
- SLEC machine all their own balsa and can cut to an emailed materials list - will see what this costs compared to buying stock Imperial sheets etc.
Will be doing a separate build-blog in due course. The model is a Quark 2m slow-aerobatic soarer.
Got the last one: **LINK**

It would seem to me, that in the mini world we work in, it should be Metric Thiness not Metric Thickness.
