David, a little charmer! I like the colour scheme you chose. With these
latest figures, this photo looks very 1950'ish.

I understand, although I have not tried it, that bare metal foil can be used to mask paintwork and that because of its clinginess and fineness, it enables curves to be masked very precisely whereas masking tape sometimes allows paint to bleed a little. I wonder if other model building experts on this Forum would share their expertise on this subject?
