“I use typewriter correction tape for vehicle road traffic lane dividers, but I have run out. Where can I buy that little thin stuff online?”

  • Dale Arendssays:

    Press-on correction tape is available from anyplace that sells office supplies. You can get it online from Amazon or eBay or Staples.com or … You’ll have to determine if it is the right width for your usage.

    Woodland Scenics, among others, sells Road Striping tape specifically for this purpose.

  • Joesays:

    Depending on what scale you are modeling
    You could use automotive stripe tape
    I think 1/32in. width is the smallest up to 3-4in.
    Hopefully this helps you or others.

    • Jerry. L. Braggsays:

      I will try remember this idea
