Why do manufactures of ARTF's insist on putting sticky tape on the covering of a model.
( it does not show that well on a photo)
On my Black Horse Renegade the small cover plates which the aileron servos are attached to were held in place during transit with cello tape, this I am finding very difficult remove with out damaging the covering below.
Has anyone got an idea how to remove this tape safely?

Warm it up slightly by using a hairdryer or similar then it should not be a problem to remove it. Remaining traces of glue can be removed using white spirit.

Peel it back on itself, Phil, holding it flat to the surface - it should peel off quite easily. A touch of white spirit may help, to work its way into the adhesive and soften it, too.

There's a liquid, in a brightly coloured plastic bottle called 'Sticky Stuff Remover' sold mainly in stationers.
I find it really good for removing any sort of tape/sticker residue, including really old congealed price stickers, sellotape and bottle labels.
