Depron problems

Hey Guys
I'm building a Depron indoor 3D biplane ( Chinese kit) and need to hinge surfaces with tape. I've tried a bunch of different tapes and nothing sticks.
The instructions call for glue tape that I have never heard of in 30+ years of modeling. I have super sticky hinge that I use for sailplanes but its to stiff and heavy. Weight is a factor on a 150g airplane'
Thanks in advance for the help

Blenderm has always worked well for me on Depron.

Get the 1" wide version:


However, 3M may have discontinued it.

3M Direct

Good luck.

You can also put down a VERY thin layer of glue and let it almost completely dry. The tap will stick....I promise.

I use blenderm as mentioned above but it's weird no where locally carries it . I had to order it off amazon . Just make sure it says blenderm . There are several different tapes that look like it .

Yes, use Blenderm tape. It is translucent and has a very smooth texture on top. I have built dozens of foamies over the years and they are all hinged with Blenderm (some of these foamies I still have and the tape is still stuck like glue to the foam). We also use it with giant scales to seal hinges, very versatile stuff and comes in handy for small field repairs to both airplanes and people

I have plenty of 1/2" Blenderm tape still in stock if anyone needs. I sell 3 rolls for 12 shipped and Will throw in a 4th roll FREE.
