Grunhertz 17,464 Posted June 5, 2022 Report Share Posted June 5, 2022 Hi all I put this together so that people can see how our masks work, so I've started with Eduards Mirage iiiCJ (not the easiest kit to build) and being painted as an Israeli "Shahak" (meaning sky) paints used are gunze but every paint I've tried has worked. As usual the kit has been built up to the point where painting is ready, the light blue underside has been applied and the sand upper Next up masks, now this is a three colour scheme so will require some masks applying and then paint, then further masks need applying. So to start, peel back the excess mask material Carefully making sure you leave the masks on the backing. then apply the masks in numerical order from the instructions some overlap may be required or they may just butt up Then burnish the mask down with a cotton bud then the brown was applied. When spraying, thin coats sprayed in from the edge to the centre rather than towards the edge, this stops the mask acting as a dam creating a ridge at the edge. Once dry, you then apply the masks for the green section, these are designed to overlap the sand colour to prevent bleeding under I numbered these with a sharpie just so i knew which went where next green is sprayed Et voilà its done If there are any ridges a small amount of micromesh (fine) can be used to take them down Masks can be bought at www.topnotch-success.net 3 3 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
