Maskol is really just for filling in big areas that are outlined by tape.
I'm not older than dirt, but I do remember when it was new.

put the tape down on the edges first, then paint the maskol on up to and onto the tape.

The stuff stinks and dosent clean off your brush to easy, so use an old brush and use in a well aired room.

I do NOT recommend using maskol on canopies.
I made the mistake of using it on my current Super Hornet build.
I just took it off and some how it reacted with the plastic and fogged it all up. I spent the next two hours sanding and polishing it back again with micro mesh and have just re dipped it in future. It look good again, but not as good as it did before I put on the maskol.
Saved the paint an PE though so it was time well spent.

Where the tape was, the canopy was crystal clear.
