Noris Raketen Aggregat - 9, Part 11, Masking For The Black

Here's the start of the fin mask.
The edges were set using Scotch tape. The tape was hit with a marker before being cut to better see the clear edges.

Note for novice builders - Paint masking lines will never be sharp unless the surfaces underneath are clean and smooth. While some builders pay extra for specialty masking tape, I can get the same results using clear Scotch tape. Don't expect great results the first time you use any new tool or building material. Practice makes close!

Everything else was covered with masking tape.

All the edges were sealed with a once over with a Q-tip.

After the tape was pulled the results were pretty good.
There will be some touch-up before the decals are applied.
