  1. Morning Thank you everyone for the rapid and extensive replies. I’m in the early stages of looking into buying a machine and trying my best not to rush in too fast- I’ve just started a long build so won’t be requiring any masks for a bit. - That said I’d like to start getting involved. I’m in the Midlands near Worcester- thanks for the offer Max but I’m a bit too far away. I can think the hardest bit for me will to get round how to use the software to create the masks. I will have a look around the forum and see what can learn. Is either of these two machines suitable: https://craftelier.com/en-gb/catalog/product/view/id/65491?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI9oWIuKnK9gIVje3tCh36XgRIEAUYASABEgKLEvD_BwE or https://www.theworks.co.uk/p/die-cutting-machines/black-silhouette-cameo-4-digital-cutter/819177022193.html?CAWELAID=720011340002914050&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIwK-R8anK9gIVyLHtCh2NOQuXEAQYASABEgIB9vD_BwE Is there much of a difference as one like £150 more expensive but like I said previously I’d rather pay more and get the hardware to perform more/better? I’ll go and have another look round the forum and see what I can find. Cheers Tim
  2. Good Evening All Wow what an amazing forum! I feel like I’m late to the party and only just now realising the versatility of making your own masks. I’m completely new to this whole area of modelling but want to get involved and participate. I have no idea what machine or software to use. I see that there are a few posts similar but were from last year and new products maybe be available….. I mostly build 1/48 aircraft but occasionally go to 1/72 stuff. I’d be interested to use masks for camo, lettering, placards or to replace as many decals as I can etc (basically so I do t have to use decals). . I know these machines are not cheap and have accepted that it’s going to cost me for good results. I’d rather pay the cash for good results than be disappointed in the long run. What machines would people recommend? Do I need additional cutters or do the in box ones do the job okay? What sheets do people use? I also have no clue on software or how to use it etc… I appreciate that this is a long post and a whole load of questions. Thank you for reading through and would really appreciate anyones thoughts or ideas. Any links would be great- I’m in the UK if it makes a difference to purchases. Sorry if there is already an existing post addressing this topic elsewhere on the forum. Many Thanks. Gassman
