441 Squadron Mustang

This is my first attempt at making my own masks with a Cameo 4. I cut them onto Tamiya masking sheet, which seemed to work OK. In the photos which show the results on the 1/72 Academy Mustang, the insignia and squadron codes were painted using the masks that I'd made with the cutter. I'm fairly pleased with the result, however the roundels are a little wonky. The smaller serial numbers are decals, as the cutter couldn't cope with that small size with the Tamiya tape. I have some Artool Hobby Mask that I may try in the future for such small lettering.

Yes, the squadron codes (9G-L)turned out very well, but I had difficulty applying the roundels, even though the cutter did a good job with them.  As I said, the smaller serial numbers (HB 876) I was not able to cut with the Tamiya masking paper, which was all I had to hand. I will try such small letters again with Artool masking, but I haven't had a chance yet.
