Default XR Combat Wing covering



Airmen............can anybody suggest a covering for this foam wing other than an Oracoat type material. I applied Oracoat and was not too happy with the final product, The manufacturer is possibly out of business ( can't get thru ) and I recall some mention of a particular tape was implied in the instructions. Thanks in advance.

My last combat wing I used the fibre reinforced tape and used coloured packing tape to do my scheme. The reinforced tape added some strength for those not too gentle arrivals

Go figure, I looked all over town, Home despot, Orchard, Target, Walmart, bla, bla, bla and finally found said tape at a packaging/art store............by accident. When is the maddness going to stop. Thanks all!

A LIGHT mist of 3M 77 spray adhesive on the foam before taping. Let it dry before applying the tape.
