  1. That’s a good thought Guy. I have cut masks for several people (over on LSP) but purely on a “friends” basis and on the understanding that whilst I know my way around a Silhouette machine and software, I do not pretend to be a professional and therefore do not supply them with any guarantee of quality or accuracy. I would be willing to consider doing a similar thing here if required for cost of materials and postage. Max

  2. This was supposed to be a quick little side project to give me an excuse to print something on my Elegoo Saturn 3D printer, but like most of my projects, dragged on and got more complicated. I decided to try to recreate the metallic effects and overall weathering as close to what we see on screen as possible, and late in the piece, I decided it needed a base for stability purposes. The lettering on the base was cut iwth my Silhoutte Portrait and applied over a white base, and SMS Jet Black applied over the top. Took me 3 goes to get this right! So what was supposed to take a few days has ended up taking a few months, but here it is. Thanks for looking! Now I need to get back to one of my many unfinished aircraft projects! Kev

  4. Thanks, Max. I had a lot of fun with this one, and the combination of 3D printing and custom paint masks takes the modeller one step closer to being fully self-sufficient. Kev

  5. Not even remotely my kind of thing Kev, but I can most certainly recognise and applaud the work, the techniques and the skill that has gone into creating it….well done my friend! 👋

  6. Hi everyone, hope all is well in your neck of the woods. This forum is a magnificent resource for all things masking/cutting etc. but not everyone owns or has access to a printer/cutter. Many however, would very much like to take advantage of the benefits of masks on their models. Since I'm new here I may well have missed a sub forum so please forgive me but, is there anywhere on site here where requests are placed? With so much talent available on tap, it occured to me that there could be a demand for custom masks? Is this something that has already been discussed? Cheers, Guy

  7. Interesting idea, Guy. At the moment we don't really have such a place in a dedicated sense, as I always assumed members would make such requests in the applicable sub-forum that relates to their request. But a dedicated section would make things clearer, so I'll give it some thought! Kev

  12. Hey Tim, not sure if you still need help. I have. Cameo 3, I, like Dave use a cutting mat, I feel you have a bit more control over the amount of material you use and you can arrange your cuts on any part of the mat. For example, if you want to print on a small 1 inch square, you can direct the cut area to that part, thus being able to use scraps of the 810 vinyl that you may have left from other cuts. I]similarly, I used the standard setting for 650 vinyl and it worked well even for some rather small masks,.

  13. This is a tale of what NOT to do! Designing and cutting the masks for the wing Balkenkreuz was straightforward but using them was not my finest hour! Let me say first of all that I got away with it, more by luck than judgement but boy, did I make life difficult for myself: Anybody with half a brain would have used an "empty" mask of the whole cross to spray a white background, then simply apply the four white L masks and spray black....voila, job done, easy peasy! But for reasons unbeknownst to me I applied the whole mask to the wing, left the "white Ls" in place and then sprayed black. This then entailed putting the fiddly narrow outer "Ls", four to each cross, back in place plus the large central cross, weeding out the "white section Ls" then spraying white. The margin for error was huge, the method was stupid, but the result was gratifying! Never again....think first! Max
