Tape - you know that classic brown paper box tape with the reinforcing threads? After a few weeks the office supply store here in our little county seat farm burg was unable to come up with it;
and today I made a 60+ mile trip to & through the city looking multiple places for it.
Nope, not even in their wholesalers' catalogs.
It obviously still exists because boxes from Amazon and from hobby shops arrive here with it.
I have a box to mail to UK and I want that kind of tape.
But, nope, retail tape is plastic only.
even with as much as I enjoy plastic models,
PLASTIC IS NOT THE SOLUTION TO EVERYTHING!!!
There, I feel better now.
Wonder if there is someplace online to by a three dollar roll of tape for ten dollars shipping and handling; it's almost like a quest for the grail to find the stuff.
Twenty-two years ago the stuff was everywhere, what changed?

Funny you'd bring this up, as someone at work was asking just the other day whatever happened to that tape. I hadn't even thought of it before he brought it up.
Beats me where it went, as you correctly pointed out that several commercial vendors still use it.
