The tapes cut out of their sheet easily. Matho Models
registry is flawless and the designs and lettering matches front and back. The paper is thick so the tapes do not bend or drape easily, but the thinner it is, the more fragile it would be. I tried soaking the paper to soften and form it but the results show that these are decals on decal paper. I rolled a pen over the tapes several times, and twisted them over and over to limber them up. They eventually hung fine.
I consider Matho Models Double Sided Warning and Caution Tape A - English
is a good set. The number of choices of designs affords great versatility. The only minor drawback is that the product is so thick that is does not drape across surfaces easily, but then again the thinner it is, the more fragile it would be.
This is a very useful set for any modeler who is considering a modern era diorama featuring hazards. Recommended.
