Look in Josse thread (Well Enhancer, for the link) there is some stuff I have used before on aircraft and car bodies, called Friskit (sp?) that is a rubber brush on type of masking that if good for stuff like this. It can be a little hard to get off sometimes but a firm pencil eraser will take it off fine in my experience.

Hello gents and Happy New Year!
I've done some more work on this tug, made more vents, taps and valves for the deck and superstructure and finally paint the cabin. I have worked with Tamiya masking tape and the results are good.I hope you will like how it looks so far.
Some pictures now...
Best regards

Thank you guys! i'm really glad you like my work.The props are now mounted, but i must mention you can control/adjust the pitch only static, and not while the props are turning. Maybe someday when i will afford to buy a mini mill i will be able to realize the gear inside them and adjust the pitch by remote. They where polished and all i need to do now is see how is she moving on the water.... I have also made some small boxes and other fittings from styrene.
Best regards
