Ironing packing tape

Thanks to @BATTLEAXE I started ironing almost all the raw foam edges on my planes and it works great. Then I started using colored packing tape to add some color to my planes. It turns out it really helps to iron down the edges of packing tape with the nozzle of your hot glue gun. It really sticks down the tape to the already ironed foam edges.

Passing the love to @kilroy07 who initiailly suggested the iron to me. I have used the hot glue gun in a pinch... I have a hard time getting it even, but it works. haven't really tried it with the tape.:unsure:
