painting on foam models

Masking tape will not work on the original paint. A trick is to use a rubber band.

It works well on surfaces where you can put the band all of the way around. Wing tips, noses fuselage striping/banding etc. I also use Aluminum foil as a broader mask. It folds and stays in place until you can apply some masking tape to join the rubber band edge with the foil.

When I am taking the masking off, I often pop the band with a sharp knife. Pretty clean and does not pull off the existing paint from the foam.

Eric.
