This AMT kit also has a Go Kart, which I'll try and finish this weekend. The model itself is inspired by a 1:1 I saw online. Same color combination. The decal for the seat I got from Hiroboy. They also have some Indian blanket pattern decals which I'll use in other models. Minor engine detailing, and some photo etched parts. It seem like it took a long time to finish this. I keep looking for a quick build, but seem to make it more difficult. 

I have a question for the community here. What is the BEST tape to use for painting and masking? The line looks pretty good here - but in all transparency, I found some white decal lines to make it look cleaner. I'd rather just find tape that does a better job masking - I used Tamiya. What else have you used? 

Happy New Year. 2020, don't let the door hit you on the way out!!

Really nice truck, the engine room is particularly clean.  For straight line masking I've used Scotch tape, cut a clean line with a sharp knife and straightedge.  It's tough to press down evenly and won't go around curves.  Others have used BareMetal foil for masking.
