I use handi-Tack for so many things. It never seems to wear out. If it starts to get a little hard just stretch it a few times and it's soft and good to go.

This stuff works get for mocking up parts. I have used it as a mask when painting. It can also be used to hold parts when you are painting them.

Cheap at any Walmart or Staples around. I have been using this one pack since 2004.

Sweet. I've used tape for the same job, but Blu-Tac is the go from now on.

Thanks for posting it Buck.

That stuff really comes in handy. BTW, Hobby Lobby sells an off brand of the same stuff really cheap. It can usually be found on a rack near the check out.

Blu Tac is the big brand name over here but I just by the cheapest generic stuff available. It does the same job.

blu tac is great stuff.........use it for holding parts whilst painting, use it for making masks whilst doing camo patterns, even used it for ballast in the nose of aircraft when ive had nothing better at hand
