I'm about to enter the paint phase for the Hasegawa 1/32 Stuka. The instruction sheet contains properly dimensioned masks for the splinter camo. Since this is the first time I've seen this in a kit I was looking for suggestions/ideas. Off the top of my head I came up with 2 ideas1) cut them out and paste them on using Maskol on the back to hold them to the model. Downsides are I may get a soft line (this would be _wrong_ .. am I correct?) and the paper will be a little stiff to work with.
2) cut them out, lay them over some over-lapped strips of Tamiya wide masking tape on glass and etch them into the tape. Then pull the tape and tack it to the model.
I'm leaning towards #2....has anybody else done this with good results?
