PML Lunar Express Build, Part 18, Mask and Reveal
Regular masking tape was used to completely fill the tail cone area mask.
Before shooting the darker green the fillet area masks were burnished down using a Q-tip.
A plastic grocery bag was used to cover up the upper body.
Here's the fin fillet color separation after all the tape was lifted. It came out clean with the mask line down the center of the epoxy fillet.
The fin slots in the landing pods were pressed into some scrap balsa from a previous build.
This gave me something to hold onto and allow painting from all sides.
