I ask as masking tape for decorating gets stickier with age and less good in preventing bleed.

I use Tamiya tape, not decorating tape :ha:

Masked up the anti-glare panel and airbrushed the NMF

I used Alclad2 ACL-119 Airframe Aluminium for the basic natural metal finish
Alclad2 ACL-111 Magnesium on selected NMF panels
Alclad2 ACL-113 Jet Exhaust on the jet pipes
A mix of Humbrol Acrylic 33 Matt Black to darken my Special Mix Tyre Black for the tyres of course

Nice work, Ratch,
That is the first B-66 I have seen built.

Cheers,

David
