Estes Bullpup #7000, Build Highlights Part 5, Selective Masking
I didn't want to re-shoot the upper fins, the over spray would make a rough final gloss around the fins.
I decided to mask down the root edges and only shoot the fin surfaces. This isn't a different color, the white mask edges won't be noticeable in the root edges.
The rest of the body was covered with masking tape, copy paper and a grocery bag.
After spraying the tape was pulled.
The model is white overall. Even with a new paint "ridge" you won't be able to see it set into the root edge.
I don't do spot masking very often. This just saves the weight of an additional overall color coat.
