Review by: RobbyDid the job nicely
Contrary to Pierre's experience I've found that this tape is comparable with any other packing tape that I've used for any other purpose. I've only ever taped one model which was Big Vick. I did need to make sure that the foam was free of dust because the Vick's build guide says to sand the wings: Maybe next time I'll rinse them in water after that process. Overall though I had no trouble and will be happy to use it on any other foam model
Review by: PierreA waste of time, energy and money
The adhesive backing is bloody awful.
Do not use it for your models like the Vick: it does NOT stick to foam or balsa in a consistent manner.
Stick and unsticks unpredictably. Only reliable adhesion is on its own surface. Can't even stick properly to a smooth table top.
Will delaminate on its own accord off concave shapes, giving a creased/blistery appearance to what it covers.
Spare yourselves the aggravation and use proper packing tape.
Ok for trim and decoration.
Sorry that you found this so poor. I have tried it and think it is like other brands I have used, no better, no worse. Can other customers please give their experiences? Should we stop selling this tape?
