    Overspray Away from the Tape

    A great tip from Chris Wallace, in FineScale Modeller, working on Hasegawa’s 1/72, Japanese WWII, Kawasaki Ki-45 “Nick”. He sprayed Tamiya White (XF-2) on he wings, vertical tail, and rear fuselage before moving to thee base coat and camouflage after masking.

    His tip was:

    Airbrushing away from, rather than towards mask edges minimizes the chance of paint bleeding under the tape.
    Not sue why I never really thought of that, and yes, I did suffer that bleeding under the tape problem in the past!

    Makes sense, you are not blasting the paint into the tape that way.
    Always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor never the tormented.
