Although I've built a lot of models in the distant past the exteriors have always been one color and supplied decals. My first build in years is just finished (Peterbilt 359) and I attempted to paint custom stripes. They ended up jagged along the edges.
I am now working on a 1:16 Kenworth W-900 that I want to two tone and separate the colors with a fairly fine copper line. I use an airbrush so the paint layers aren't thick at all.
Anyway, order of opperations..
Spray copper lines first, mask them and apply colors?
Apply colors, mask the line and spray?
Remove mask immediately or wait until the paint is fully cured?
I know it must seem like silly questions, but I really want to get the Kenworth right without having to strip anything.
Thanks in advance!
