How do you people get such great masked edges????
Everytime I try to mask I get paint leaking under the edges and after a single coat the tape starts to lift. I've tried all sorts of masking tape and cannot beat this problem.

Well my technique is i use blue painters tape that you can get in any paint section at fredmeyer or home depots and such i use the light stick one so that when i peel off the tape no paint from the first coat peels off.
also to prevent bleed-thru i take a stylus and rub around the sections i want mased off for example this one has alot of embossed edges so i rub on them with a stylus and then cut off the sextions i want to paint the secondary color with.

I have the exact same model, man this is taking me back!
I did not spend near the time you are on the paint job, I
simply antigued the hull using black oil paint in a thinner solution,
then wiped it using a paper towel a day later. The result showed
all the detailing on the surface of the hull.

Great job! Keep it up!

I thought of doing that, but even then it would still be just one color for the ship looking aged,
at least which is how it would look to me.the way I am doing this is a two tone grey format
almost Aztec scheme like with my star trek ships, so I wanted this ship to not just look factory
new, but detailed as well.
