Came across this Youtube video that shows a tape product for adding detail. 

 

Anyone use it?

 

Is there one for streets?

 

Thanks

I have used nail art strip tape from eBay for road markings for my simple 4 meter wide road.  Sorry I don't have a current working link.

European manufacturers also have road as a roll @toc36 with decorations that you have to rub and apply. But obviously they won't be following japanese example.

But it might be handy if you want to cover some miles... err, feet, on your layout.

Put nail tape into ebay search. Works well around or just under 1mm so about 4-6” wide scale.

yellow and white are the two suspects!

Yikes. 0.99$ for the tape, and...

 

C $150.00 (approx. US $111.17) shipping

 

Living in Canada is WEIRD.

Yikes! Maybe try some others to see if not the hideous shipping. It was free here. But ebay has this deal with USPS and China Post to do bulk shipping very cheap to the us. If you cant find one with reasonable shipping I have several of these and could pop one in the post to you.

Sounds like they’re trying to ship actual roads instead of scale road tape o.O

Extremely generous of you, but I'm in no hurry. It'll be a while before I start in on the n-scale layout.

I'm not entirely sure that roads wouldn't be cheaper! I often see weirdly out of scale shipping from rando ebayers, but $150 for an ounce of tape is probably the worst I've ever seen. But Hey! Each additional item is *free*!
