  1. Last week
  2. Thanks, DBB. What program are you using to design your parts? Gene K
  3. Use as you wish, that’s fine. Max
  4. That reminds me of the vinyl that Montex uses in its set, where I've had similar issues. That's a bit surprising from a paper-based tape, though. Kev
  5. Becoming a little less liking this stuff. It should stick on the canopy better than this. The canopy curve isn't that extreme and this is 32nd scale. I didn't wash the canopy parts although it isn't falling off, it's just not sticking over the curve. I'll be fine if I press it down when I go to paint, but....
  6. Nice work! I don't have a cutter, or work in 1/32, but I did take those masks rescale them into 1/48 and 1/72, and turn them into PDFs for manual tracing. I'm not sure about the copyright arrangements here, though.
  7. Earlier
  8. Yes, those seem to have come out okay. I tried some cuts at Depth setting of 1 and I'm not sure if it actually cut properly. I also tried using this for the masks for the markings on the top surface of the wing above the flaps that I've gotten the idea it is something like 'NO STEP' and one of the Japanese characters did not cut well. I have not gone back and altered the speed and pressure yet. Right now, I'm working on the canopy masks for the Ki-100. I'll see how those turn out.
  9. Great results, Dave! Thanks for running these tests for us. Still on the look out myself. Kev
  10. Thank you for this, made me take a second look at the RNZAF Anson I am currently building. It didn't carry any guns so I will need to use your file.
  11. I ordered some of the Green Stuff World masking material. Each pack contains two, 200mm x 300mm (8" x 12") sheets. I needed to make a half circle as part of the masking of the silver paint on my Ki-100 model (over at LSP). And I added a couple of the "64"s for the landing gear covers. I cut an 1.5" x 4" piece and placed on the Cameo cutting mat. And sent through the cutter using the normal setting that I've been using for materials like Oracal 810 and Art tool Ultra Mask. The setting to note is the depth of 2. As you can see, with a depth setting of 2 it is close to cutting the whole way through. I ran another with a depth setting of 1 and it seems to have made the cuts without coming close to cutting through. I then placed some of the cut masks on the onto the model. The half circle will be accompanied by tape to mask the under side of the fuselage, etc. I used Frisket as a transfer tape to place the "64"s. I found the GSW masking at Noble Knight Games. It was ~$4.30 per pack there, on the Green Stuff World (Spain) site it was ~$2.50 per pack. The Tamiya sheets were ~7" x 9", 5 sheets for about $11, if you can find it. Looking on the SB site, Ammo, Border, and Tamiya have masking sheets of various sizes and quantities. Some don't show in stock. I haven't decided on trying out the other material that I found, it's 12" x 11 yards at $65. If it works, it will probably last my lifetime. 🤪
  12. View File DUNLOP tires Here are markings for adding DUNLOP to road racing car tires. The blue circle will help estimate the size of stencil for a particular kit and can be either deleted or selected as a non-cut before cutting. Use a non-solvent paint if painting rubber tires, as solvent paints will soften the rubber. Dunlop racing tires, or tyres for my UK audience, also had a small logo ahead of the D but this is too small for a stencil. Different racing series used different tire brands and sometimes would change from one season to the next. Per usual, check references or just go for it and use them anyway.

  14. Hmmm, I found this at Coast Airbrush. It looks very similar. coastairbrush.com/proddetail.asp?prod=FBS_Gold_Mask_Plottable_Masking&cat=23
  15. The name Kamoi seems to be related to the material. Most listings on google show some sort of tape. I also saw some indications about that tape related to masking for painting automobiles but I haven’t gone on a search for a local automobile paint supplier yet. I found that Green Stuff World has 200 x 300mm sheets. If I order directly from GSW it’s a pack of 2 sheets for about $2.50. But the shipping. I found someone here in the states who sells them for about 60% more.
  16. It's a good question. I can't even find the Tamiya sheets here in Australia! Kev
  17. Anyone come across a source for sheets of the material like Tamiya tape? Other than buying the small sheets from Tamiya and others? Eduard and others are selling masks made from the same or similar stuff.
  18. Hello Denis…..you found our secret hideaway then! 😅 Max
  19. Thanks guys for the kind words 🙂
  20. Works for me ... in most cases.👍 Gene K
  21. Welcome to our Forum! 1/72 masks sound scary…..too small! 😃
  22. Does anyone have a mask of the scallop pattern that's used on the leading edge of the later model wing leading edges? I am not confident in free handing it. Thanks in advance!
  23. Hello there! I'm a French expat in beautiful Estonia and a 1/72 aircraft modeller. My Silouhette Portrait is on the way and I'm pretty excited about the opportunities for custom markings, canopy masks and other modelling purposes. I hope to be able to contribute to the library very soon 🙂 Thanks for having me!
  24. Bonjour Denis, bienvenue.
  25. Thanks Kevin, I did manage to edit my message. 😉
