Hi Guys can anybody advise.
All of my builds in this GB are based on the old ( pre wingspar) kits. I have the montex masking set and it doesn't seem to match the spaces on the canopy. Is this set for the new mould ? What did others use? I may have to resort to tape but with Five builds I could be some time !!!!

I didn't use any mask. If you have a steady hand, use a bowman pen. . . . in conjunction with tape of course. I didn't cut squares, I place tape across the canopy frame then when dried a used the pen for the front/rear framing. Good luck with your choice

Thanks Ian, never played with a bow pen but will probably just tape and paint fore and aft and then port to starboard.
