Default Nylon wing bolt for Turbo timber

Anyone now where i can get these for my Turbo timber? I know Eflite got a hardware bag with all included but only wan't the nylon scews/bolts.
I meassured them to be 4mm diameter and 300mm long. Can't seem to find them on Ebay either. And some good strong transperant tape for wing edges front and tail section?

Some hardware stores have excellent selections of nylon bolts. Here in the US I get mine from Lowes.

Are they really 300 mm long? I have never seen such a length in nylon.

I have some extras here, but it would probably take 2 weeks to send them to Denmark,
There should be a good nut and bolt supply around there somewhere.

How about shipping tape?
We have clear shipping tape that you can't break, you must cut it with something sharp.
You could put a few layers if you want it more rigid, maybe even taping a wire inside.

Most people use packing tape if they do it at all..

Leading edges etc. do not need strong tape as its usually only to protect against dents and dings.

If you really want strong tape - then its going to be heavy for its use and something like Gutter Tape or the Fibreglass Tape that hobby shops / Hobby King sells.

If flying a high winger - its debatable what use it is .. a low winger - yes understood.
