How can I mask my 1:72 Hurricane canopy. I don't have access to Tamiya tape or Parafilm-M. I don't really want to have to buy special masking kits either. Are there any easy, cheap ways to mask canopies?

Sorry but I need to ask this, can't find any previous topics.

I would find drafting tape. Try your local office supply store. It has less tack than regular masking tape. Regular masking tape works also. I would NOT use scotch tape. Wish you luck
