Need help with paint masks...

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I need help with custom made paints masks. I have a started 1/32 Hasegawa Ki-84 Prototype

which I've converted to a regular version - the parts are in the kit so that was no big deal. However,

I do only have the kit markings for the prototype and I would like to finish her in these markings:

I've enlarged the decal sheet from this 48scale kit by 150% to get a templat to cut my own masks. But,

I miserably failed with the tail number "69" :unsure: - I don't have a cutter, I work carpenter style from Tamiya 

tape and very sharp blade, so understandably I cannot handle curves. Any idea where to find someone

to do the "69" mask (see No. 9):

Any hint or help would be highly appreciated.

Have you checked with Montex? I used their masks for painting mine, see link in my signature.

 

Check Maketar also, they made some custom masks for my cougar a year ago. However, you may have to provide them with a broken down drawing, most companies will not re-create other companies artwork.

If Joachim can't help, I can Lothar......and I'm in your debt!!  The only slight problem is that I'm away for the whole of September "down under", so if you're in a hurry it would have to be in the next week and a bit.

Lothar if you don’t have luck with precut masks consider trying a “french curve” for cutting it out by hand. It’s like doing one of those connect the dots pictures from when we were kids :-)
