I don't think of it as a "process". Simply mask the sections that you don't want to paint, spray then wait for it to dry, mask again and spray again. Just keep on doing that until you have the scheme done. For this I used Scotch auto masking tape which I'd already cut some 'wiggles' and curves in to and applied them so the green & grey were roughly 50/50 of the exposed surface.

HTH

Took a fair effort to finish it all, and it's unbelievably delicate, which you probably guessed anyways. All that said, I thoroughly enjoyed this project, so thanks to those folks who commented through this WiP thread.

More pics in the 'Gallery'/'completed builds' a little later after I run them through the photo editor.

Very nice.
With the winch and tail-boom-guard-thingy there's quite a bit of detail in the kit to add some extra interest.
As with so many builds I see on this site - I want to do one now too :)

It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
