I have a WbB FB-1 shell that I masked off for painting. This started out as a Lehigh Valley factory scheme, but by masking off and painting with some cheap red Wallywart rattle-can spray paint (almost a perfect color match to the FA-1's, by the way), I have turned it into a Rock Island FB-1 to go with my WbB FA-1's.
At this point in time, I have some touch-up paint work to do, as the red has bled under the masking tape in places over the white. Not a big deal really, as I can go back in and touch up as required. Pictures enclosed, although they don't show the bleeding quite as well as seeing it in person. Incidentally, I masked off with blue painter's masking tape as best as I could.
Is there any thing I could have done for a better masking job, where I wouldn't have to go in and do the touch-up work? Trying to seal the tape down over the rivet and body break lines in plastic moldings was fairly tough to start with. Thanks in advance for any advice/ideas.
