"With a little care it looks great"
Smckinley94 (Arizona)
I have used metal foil for small parts / rocker panels and finally decided to do a whole car. I am very impressed with finished product. Do take care of overlap locations when applying as edges will show through.

"Nothing else compares"
nscrfns
I've used it in all the normal ways but my favorite applications is for masking aircraft canopies. Lay a piece a little larger than the canopy window. Burnish it down well with Tamiya medium round pointed cotton buds. Trim with a NEW hobby blade or scalpel as close to the canopy framework as possible. After painting use a round toothpick sanded to a chisel point to gently lift a corner or edge and peel off with tweezers. If paint is heavy (like many clear coats) it may be necessary to trim next to the framework with a hobby blade or scalpel before trying to remove to avoid lifting paint. Use several overlapping strips on bubble canopies. It is only .0005 thick so handle with care and practice, practice, practice. You will never go back to masking canopies with anything else. Residual sticky can be removed with WD40 or Goo Gone on a cotton bud followed by vinegar & water solution (ratio isn't critical) and soft cloth for cleaning glasses.

 
"first time user."
hilmanscotslion
this will be the first time i have used this. after reading review's it seem's to have a lot of fan's. i expect that i will have to use trail and error to get it down pat. but it can't be any harder than trying to paint the trim on a model by hand.

 
"Best way to highlight molded-in chrome detail"
Dave S.
I've been out of modeling for over 20 years; and just gotten back into it. This stuff was the best way to pick out molded-in chrome back then, and it's still best now. It beats trying to paint it, hands-down. It looks much better, to boot. Just be sure you use a NEW, SHARP X-Acto blade to trim it.... it's quite possible to rip it. Once it's on, burnish it down carefully, and now your chrome looks like the real thing. An outstanding modeling product.
