How about using a piece of glass instead of the cardboard.  You can then do away with the initial layers of tape and stick the final tape layer onto the glass.

Also, try using frisket film instead of masking tape.  If you get low tack film it'll peel off easier.

Thanks for the advice Fred, I'll have to try that next time.

looks more like you're gonna have "The Stig" as your driver.  :)

Havnet been able to do much lately on my model. But things are looking up. Got myself a new workstation. The bench is 1,80x0,60 (meters)

Nice body work on the Camaro, the smiley is also very clever. If you would like an outside opinion on tires I'd say the wide walls. I think they would work better with the wide body of the car. But either set would look just fine, great work so far.

Well...I`m gonna call myself out on this one guys. With the lack of build skills most of you are showing I was a shoe in to win as well :P .

 

Seriously though. I hate to commit myself to something and not see it through to the end but I was in a pretty serious motorcycle crash a few months ago that has left me tired and beat up. I havent even started on my truck yet and I just dont have the energy or inclination to do so anytime soon.

 

There are some very cool builds going on in here and Im still tuning in regularily and like what Im seeing. Good luck to all of you, its gonna be a cool looking finish line.

Really sorry to hear that ARC.  As a fellow rider (I ride dirt only though), I can defininetly relate to what you went through.  Hopefully you recover quickly and can get back in the saddle soon!

I don't' mean to make things worse for you ARC, but what a let down. That said, recovering from harm would be very distracting to model building. So keep your energy focused on healing and we'll look for your next project.

Thanks for all the well wishes guys, it helps. You`ve actually inspired me a bit. I may start work on my Cannonballer soon but wont be done nearly in time for the finish line.
