ScratchBuild Modle Airplane Made with Carton Tape

on . Posted in Tape Projects

Our friend Ed O'Beirne has a great project called Experimental Airlines where he creates and promotes the creation of innovative remote contol airplanes that include colored packing tapes provided by 

Ed says, "The crucial components of the genre of airplane I like to design, build, and promote are your colored packing tapes plus Readi-Board (aka "Dollar Tree Foamboard) and hot glue. I've developed a method of consistently applying the tape to the foamboard prior to building. The tape not only adds color but also strength, durability, and waterproofing (from wet grass)."

Ed has a contest he runs every couple of months to see who can build the most outstanding example of a model airplane using his technique.
