Estes Apollo Little Joe II Build, Part 41, Paint Mask and DECALS!
The simple tube mask went well, at the top of the corrugated wrap the line is sharp.
Here's how the bottom turned out after a few rounds of spray paint and light sanding.
The clear coat is very thin! That's a good thing on smaller decals, the clear coat is almost invisible.
I could have added a spray of clear acrylic but I wanted to transfer them as is, like an average modeler might.
GOTCHA and TIP: The large body wrap would be nearly impossible to place in one large piece. Even when cut into sections it is still tricky.
You should cut a segment as you need it so you won't loose the correct placement order.
