So clean! I have the same kit. Any tips before I start it? For me the masking will be the challenge.

You are right, masking is the hardest step in this kit. I use 6mm tape to mask f, r bumpers, 18mm tape mask the side and cut out shape of window and side bumpers along the modeled trench. Fenders are boss, i use flexible tape on body to fit its shape.
In fact, this panda also not so successful either. The edge of w and b on fender can be controlled better. Aoshima can produce its origional shaped masking like tamiya and fujimi. Glad to see Aos has done this in recent productions crown and pervia.
