so i’m working on an eduard 1/48 albatros d iii. I have the fuselage, tail, and lower wing assembled. I now need to paint it. I’m at a loss for how to mask the engine. I wish I had masked it before I put it inside the fuselage (but then I wouldn’t be sure how to get the masking off). The side where the exhausts will go isn’t really a problem - I can get masking tape around it there. But the side without where the engine cowling kind of bends in under the intake manifold assembly. How do you mask that?
While I’m at it, what’s your best trick for masking the cockpit? I stuff foam in there but it seems to spread out and overlap the fuselage. I imagine I’ll run a couple of pieces of tape around it then stick the foam in. But other cool tricks/tips would be welcomed.
