I wish I hadn't ! It's a pain, and masking/spraying it was a daft idea. I should have stuck to a paint brush :oops:

How did you mask it?
If it ain't broke, fix it 'til it is.

I used masking fluid. It's mentioned earlier in the thread. Basically, spray it sand, then paint the bits to stay sand with masking fluid. Spray it green and mask the bits to stay green with masking fluid. Finally, spray it brown. Then rub all the masking fluid off. It would probably work well on a larger model, but it didn't work very well with this small model.

I recently found a new way to mask using Blu-Tac. Basicly the same but so much easier to remove.

I've added the tracks and rear wheels now. The tracks wouldn't stay joined using the recommended hot screwdriver, but super glue worked just fine.

Next comes some weathering.
