R5-D4's metallic 'machine turn' neck tape

UK builders have struggled to find this and from reading up, most have had to import it from the USA, at addition cost.

A fellow member asked me for info on my tape and where to get it from.

After explaining my luck a few years ago, I decided to look for the elusive 'machine turn' material!

USA builders can find the supplier....... Tape Planet [click for link]

And this place has it in sheet form over here in the UK.

Update, fellow club member was VERY happy with this!

  2. UPDATE: This company's supplier has changed the size of the 'turn', to a very small size. This is no longer an option for accurate neck tape for R5-D4. Update Post on Blog, see this date.
