Thanks mate. If I were to do it again making masks like this I'd simplify the process. Instead of trying to make positive and negative masks I'd just paint the area light ghost grey then mask and paint over it with dark ghost grey. Making matching positive and negative masks by hand is too hard. I've had to settle for a near enough is good enough approach.

However with pre-cut masks or a vinyl cutter that's a very different story.

Nice build... I will start the Revell 1/32 Superhornet next...

One thing I learned after airbrushing some 1:48 sidewinder missiles some years back, is to let the paint dry fully, before touching anything, and also, best add a gloss coat before the paint is disturbed by dust fingerprints or whatever.

Good advice. The biggest issue I had with them was supergluing the fins on. Only getting the glue in the right spot and holding such tiny parts in place. Would be a lot easier on a larger scale
