Nice looking work, Mal.
As a person always trying to improve on canopy results, I'm a bit curious about the blobs on each mask and panel.

Cheers,

Likewise, I'm curious Mal, and how about a pic or 2 of the Tiger?

Cheers, D

I have masked the canopies using Parafilm M. The blobs are waste bits of Parafilm pressed onto the masking pieces to aid removal of the masking. Easy to get hold of and pulls up the masking when the time comes

I actually completely forgot about the Tiger and at least one other model. I'll post pics later

You obviously "get on" with parafilm, any tips, it's never worked properly for me, i'm a tamiya tape kind of guy.

Yep I'll post a SBS, I find it to be the easiest way of masking canopies but you do need to understand a few things when using it
