Modelers now have a more scale option when it comes to pinked edge finishing tapes. For years modelers have been searching for a more scale option when it came to replicating pinked edge finishing tapes, the choices were few and not very scale. Pinked edge tapes cut from ceconite are actually cut for full size aircraft and the "pinks" are to large for scale models. Hair net and bandage tapes also have too large of "pinks" for scale models, are difficult to paint and really stand out once applied and painted (this is a bad thing). On full size aircraft you do not even notice the pinked edge tapes until you are about 3' away from the plane, so why would you want thick, heavy hair net/ bandage tapes on your model that can be seen from across the field?
Pink-It tapes are cut from Solartex which is a fabric covering that has a heat activated adhesive applied on the back. To apply Pink-It tapes you simply iron them on, they have a very nice fabric texture. No need for smelly, toxic chemicals.
