Default Attention All Aussies!?!?!?

Hello fellow Aussie warbird fans.

I have been trying to source some 1/32 & 1/64 ( thats 0.4mm & 0.8mm in that new language ) chart tape or drafting tape for use in creating panel lines. Anyone know where in Australia I can get it?

Good luck - I tried for ages to get this stuff without success over here.

ended up getting a roll of auto pinstriping tape and pulling it through a basic stripping jig - worked fine and easily got down to 1/64".

If you don't have any luck with the real thing, let me know and I'll post a photo of my gadget.

Cheers, Cam

ps Works great - panel lines came out perfectly!

Hi,

I have been able to get this tape from a company?store called Eckersleys.

They can do mail order and have stores in Brisbane , NSW etc.

Their phone number is 1300 657 766. or www.eckersleys.com.au

Hope this helps.

Hey Merlin Man

I rang these guys & got their Brisbane store. They did not know what I was talking about. Do you know what product name they sell it as, or even better a product code?

Cheers

Sportstar1,
I have sent you a separate email. It is called Letraset 1/64 black opaque line tape.

I purchased in mid 2005, so maybe they have stopped carrying this product. Try the Newcastle shop.

Cheers
Merlin Man.
