  1. Reinhard, Oops I thought you were the modeler. Very nice photography! Which forum on this site do you think would be best to have a discussion about masking techniques?
  2. Reinhard, What are your thoughts about this technique? People talk about using masks made of metal and blue tac. I think torn paper is way more effective if you want soft edges but nobody seems to realize this. Selrach
  3. Reinhard, Here is an example from another website. I am not sure how to insert images into replies. I do not have a flickr account. If you know an easy way to cut and paste images please let me know or I could send it to you via regular email. I would value very much you opinions about these masking techniques. http://www.scale-models.co.uk/threads/italeri-trimaster-dml-fw-190-d-9-1-48.18635/ Regards, Selrach
  4. Hi Reinhard, I really enjoy your work. I think it is top notch. After looking at this model in super zoom on flickr I have a suggestion that might help you do the paint schemes even better. What I have found is that if you tear holes in paper masks you can get mottle spots that have no spatter or speckle overspray. The atomisation of the paint is near perfect since you can thin the paint down a little more and spray and higher pressures. The torn edges of the hole also atomises the paint. If one is really meticulous, one can create an entire pattern of spots to scale as seen in a photograph. The mask making takes some work and precision but the painting is pretty fast and easy. If would like, I can send examples showing this technique. Regards, Selrach

    Fine Molds 1/72 Bf 109 K-4

    Wow, This is the best I have seen of this aircraft in 1/72. The finish on the paint looks perfect! Great job! It also looks like the kit itself is the best that is out there. The canopy is amazing. I will have to use your post as a reference for the future! One thing that I might want to discuss is whether accentuation of the panel lines on the wings and body away from sources of grease and soot should be left alone or not. The don't show up much in photographs. What do you think? Selrach
