    Hi Martin,
    Not to bad but is about twice the price of normal crepe tape. Can be left in place I think for 90 days and gives a sharp edge but I wouldn't use it for lining.

    Hi Ianh,
    I bet it has a Professional price to match.

    If it looks right it probably is.

    I have only got the choice of Tamiya in SA
    I have found another excellent masking tape that doesn't leave the glue residue. It is made by Sellotape and it is red in colour and made of plastic apparently made for the professional

    Which is most expensive Tamiya or Frog, I think its Tamiya just check out the size of the role for Frog and compare with Tamiya.

    I use cheap electrical insulation tape on the hull as it stretches and can mold to the contours of the hull plus it is low tack as it is cheap. I then mask with newspaper below the tape. Next is to give a quick spray of the colour beneath the tape/masking just to seal the edge and stop paint bleeding then I spray the other hull colour over it. Before the paint is dry (just a bit tacky) I then take the tape off pulling diagonally and this seems to do the job with me. You may feel a light ridge between along the colour 'join' line and if you feel brave and while the paint is still soft, wet a finger and gently stroke along this line just to soften the edge.

    If I could walk that way I wouldn't need the talcum powder at all!! πŸ˜πŸ˜‚

    You can't beat Tamiya tape for lining (A reel lasts for years) It has an excellent edge and is low tack. Also if you can get signwriters tape also works

    I mask my boats in the same way Doug does...Tamiya tape, then a regular masking or 3M green body shop tape and newspaper. I also use β€œFrogtape”. The yellow tape is for delicate surfaces, and it leaves a very sharp clean line and no residue whatsoever.
