Great review Rowan, I will definitely have a look around for this brand as I am finding the flexible tape very useful in Auto builds. The one downside I have found is the thickness of the Tamiya tape I am currently using. I am usually taping surface details or trims for chrome paint, and they require painting in 3 dimensions, but in some cases the tape is almost the same “height” as the detail so I lose the ability to paint the side of the detail properly.

Hmmmm, marketing opportunity? Beveled edge flexible tape 🤔

Cheers, D

Excellent review Rowan. Definitely worth taking a look at.
How is the adhesion compared to Tamiya?
