Over the past few years, I've used Montex mask sets on a few builds and I've been cutting my own masks (although, just simple stuff) for quite some time, using Kabuki tape, Tamiya sheets, etc. The two planes I'm working on right now are basically pieced together from my spares, especially the decals. No real masks, spare some Tamiya tape for a couple of stripes and the canopies, of course. In the past couple days, I've come to realize just how much I prefer masking/painting as much as possible, as opposed to using decals. So, I think it's time.....
I want to order a Cameo, but would love to get advice from those who have them and have used them a bit. There are some threads that cover some of this, but my main question is; with what's currently available for this setup, what would you recommend I order, right up front? Take into account that I'm surely going to need at least a couple practice runs to learn and get it down. So, what should my shopping list look like? Also, if anyone has opinions on a good U.S. source(s) to purchase from, I would love to hear that, as well.
