Really depends on the paint. I use Gunze and have no problem removing blu-tack straight away. I also use the blutack to remove residueand all bits of crap from the paint sort of like and eraser

Thanks Craig, I usually use gunze or tamiya also so it should work the same way.

Just to add to the blu tack thing, I use the white stuff as it doesn't have the same oils/chemicals in it to react with the paint so you can leave it on for quite some time.

Thanks Clinton, I actually went out yesterday and got some white tac anyway. I have some green stuff I ninja'd from work but I've noticed the oils in it bleed through paper within a couple of weeks so might not be the best to use on models, hence why I got some white instead.

So after not having time or motivation to do any work on my adversary lately, I decided tonight to push ahead and get the next coat of paint on. First task was the masking, which with white tac and tamiya masking tape went pretty well.





I then went ahead with the green and despite a couple of hiccups starting off (too much retarder I think as it wasn't drying) I managed to get through it ok.





I did come across a couple of bits along each wing root where the primer was a bit rough so I may have to get rid of the roughness and respray the green but I'll see how it is when it's dry properly. After waiting about 15 min or so I removed the masking and bar a few bits here and there where the soft camo edge is a little too soft, overall it came out pretty good I think.







That's all for now, I might try and get the dark brown on this weekend if I get time. We'll see how I go. I'm fighting the urge to pull something else out of the stash as I normally do, since I promised SWMBO that I would finish my daughter's model before her 2nd birthday I need to work on that instead, a 1/72 pink idolmaster f-22.

Yeah it's always a bit of " I hope I don't screw this up!" the first time you start hacking bits off a kit...
