Can you tell me what the product is called and where I can obtain it.
Thanks for your help,

Sorry I don't have any info for you yet, but soon we are working on the final product as we speak, a few weeks and i will be able to give out the specs and name of the new finished product and where you can buy it.

Hey Ray Thanks for the kind words, I like to do detailing some times with this plane I decided to do a little extra work and hand carve the pilot and gunner and paint them to resemble WW1 period airmen. the pilots scarf is made from a terry cloth hand towel, the gunner will have one also. as for the plane and the rest of the details, they are just made up from my imagination and remind me of what a WW1 fighter might look like. I encourage anyone to get into your shop dig out some scrap foam, wood and whatever else you can find and get creative and start gluing things together as you go. No plans just let the ideas flow and have fun. Just pick an era you like and build it. My plane is nothing more than balsa, scrap depron foam and Foam-Tac, that's it. Have fun.
Thanks Again
Eric

Sorry but I don't understand that marketing strategy. I live in a small city with no hobby shops. The nearest one is 30 miles away. There probably are only a few hobby shops in the whole state. But there are lots of Michaels, JoAnns and Hobby Lobby craft stores. No hobby shops here but we have both a Michaels and JoAnns. These places already carry all of the other Beacon products as well as many other supplies rc aircraft builders use. It would be so easy for them include foam tac with their Beacon order. A hobby shop would have to make a special order, no? Also, I ordered Foam Tac from an online vendor along with a bunch of other stuff. I would not have ordered it and paid the shipping just for glue. Making your hobby products more available to more local stores would make better sense to me. BTW, my wifes hobby is 1/4" scale minature doll houses and she uses the Foam Tac frequently. She is also at JoAnns and Michaels weekly. Unless you have limited production capability I think that you are unnecessarily limiting your market.

Hi Larry,

I've been selling this product for a couple of years now & have a loyal following. I will have the new product in sometime next week, but you can place your order now. I'll be filling orders on a first-come first-served basis, and will have plenty in stock to cover existing + new orders.

Beacon Foam-Tac Glue

Regards,
Bill

Yes folks foamtac is great stuff but they need to sell it at Walmart Stores so i can get some
more without paying for shipping on top of the allready high price.
I have seen Beacons Tacky glue at Walmart but that is not as good.

Foam Tac in Columbus Ohio and everywhere else.

Hi Guys, This is for all you guys that are wondering where to get Foam-Tac in Columbus, I called Hobbytown and Cyclone hobbies, I suggest you call them and request or suggest they carry Foam-Tac, and I will follow up with them next week when we start shipping. I am confident that after I spoke with them and you call asking for it they place an order. Works out well as you can then get it local to you.
I am also asking everyone else that wants to buy Foam-Tac local to them to call your local hobby shop and request they carry Foam-Tac. as I am calling all over the US in an effort to get the product in your local stores.
Thank for your help.
