Mask­ing is key to a project such as this and Tamiya’s low-tack tape is ideal. It comes in 6mm, 10mm, 18mm and 40mm widths. There are three white tapes in 2mm, 3mm and 5mm form for curves too. It’s best to arm your­self with sev­eral dif­fer­ent widths. The Tamiya mask­ing tape can be cut eas­ily. Make sev­eral nar­row strips of tape as these can be formed around the curves eas­ier. It is crit­i­cal to have a straight edge and sharp blades, to pre­vent any feath­er­ing at the edge of the tape. Make sev­eral dif­fer­ent widths and lengths, some longer than you’ll need, and some very short sec­tions.
