hey,

anyone have good results using liquid mask in their paint jobs? I've got some for my 1:10 lexan bodies and thought why not?

I have used the humbrol brand . . . Wasnt impressed pain to apply and even worse to get off ,
Other brands may be better but as i had a bad experience i was put off from trying any .
The one i used was just like contact adhesive but purple

Used Fasmask by Parma.

It takes long time to dry.
It's not easy to get correct, but then again so ain't masking.
But it's easy to peal of.

But I don't like it...

for humbrol, you need to use scotch brite. i use it for my tank line, and it works nice. beware the smell though.

Am I to understand you wash the liquid mask off with scotchbrite? I'm not sure I've understood where your heading here.....

I found that with the paint I used (Krylon Fusion for Plastic) it ate the paint. When I peeled it off some of the paint underneath came off with the mask. What was left behind was bubbled. Clearly the wrong stuff to use with that paint.

For mini-z I will be using tamiya TS rattle can and the tamiya X acrylic paints. I will try the liquid mask on a test body in the future with these paints but since I'm having better success with tape and the colour layout for my race scheme I'll most likely stick with tape.
