Tamiya's new masking tape for curves

Postby DesTROYer » Wed Jun 03, 2015 1:41 pm

Has anyone here tried this yet? At $20 a roll it's a bit expensive for something that may not work as well as advertised.

Comes in 2mm, 3mm and 5mm widths.

Sorry, somehow I have posted this in the wrong section. I'm going to blame my phone.

Maritime reference section maybe not, although I did see HMAS Canberra in Cleveland Bay this morning, and took a really crappy photo on my phone, that looks like a spot on the lens, so does that count?
Looked so large in real life, and so miniscule on my phone, I need to get a phone with a much better camera.

I'm sure it would work well, at least it's a decent length at 20 M, I bought some a couple of years ago that was about half that price, but just 2 M in length, a real rip off.

I use automotive plastic masking tape as it's much cheaper and does the same job...

Brisbane Refinish Supplies but most automotive paint suppliers will have it. Comes in a heap of different widths, too.
