Masking for insignia and markings

Instruction for spraying insignia and markings.

Basic material in my case: Montex masks and Tamiya masking material.

Model: The Tempest from SH in 32.

Preparing the masks, so that you find later on the correct position again. Make the right and left side easy distinguishable.

I recommend spraying the individual markings before the camouflage. It is easier and avoids masking over too large areas. You save a lot of masking material!

After the camouflage is done, you continue with roundels and flash. Red color is first done. The small masks can be easily positioned, big ones are too complicated for repositioning!

In my case the ID strpes too.

So you may avoid decals. No silvering at all. Weathering is also more easy!

 

Happy modelling
