After the paintjob it immediately looks more real and massive. Great work!

The overall appearance is perfect and the smallest detail has been executed to

I may have missed it, but what type of tape did you use for the masking when you painted? I would be afraid of the tape sticking to the paper.

Outstanding job, by the way.

Thanks fellows

Vermin King > I use Tamiya masking tape. There is in several width. In this case I use a 6mm width but cut along to make two of 3mm.
No problem with paper, only in the area of the cuts but only if we do remove the ribbon from the cutting to back.
