Spotlight Review

"Invaluable product for most modeling needs"
With a 6mm width, this is probably the most used masking tape I have in my tool kit. The tape has the right amount of tackiness and won't leave a residue and the dispenser makes it very handy to use. Being a paper tape, however, it doesn't have any flexibility for masking curves, which a vinyl tape would offer.

"Great masking tape for small details."
excellent masking tape. Adhesion is very good yet still easily repositioned and removed. Is it also thinner than painters tape which allows you to make tighter, smoother curves and follow contours better than typical masking tapes allow. No issues at all with edge bleed either. It forms a crisp edge every time. With its small size of 6mm, its specially good for masking a canopy, and for any small detail work its highly recommended.

"high quality, go-to masking tape"
i use all kinds of masking materials in my model building, especially airplanes, which i paint after they are built and body worked. this tape is what i go to for that all-important first line when masking. it creates a really good paint edge, and sticks well, but comes off nicely when you need it to. top quality product that does its job well.

"Tamiya Model Masking Tape with dispenser."
Steve P. (Albany, N.Y.)
I have been using this tape for a few years for everything from holding parts while I paint them and then stick them to a table edge while it dries, to holding parts together while the glue dries. But now I have the dispenser also. It makes these jobs easier and quicker. I use the 6mm and the 10mm. When you are using an airbrush sometimes you need a crisp line to define between two or more colors. The tape and dispenser is the way to go.
