Frog Tape

Hi All,
I am sure the strange name made you check out this post but this is not an item for taping up frogs!! :roll: :lol:
Although I am sure you could. :oops: :lol:
What this product is is a great trimming tape that will not let the paint leach under the tape to destory your nice trim line.
I hate that when it happens. :evil: :evil:
I had purchased this tape a while back but had never tried it till yesterday when I was painting the trim lines on my FS-1.
All I can say is it works!! 8) And works well!! :wink: BD.

The website talks about latex paint. Does this work with enamels and lacquers too?

What kind of paint did you use?

I used Model Master Enamel.
I brushed it over the stripe line I had made with the tape.
Normally I would be cautious with the amount of paint I used but I just brushed it on and it worked great. BD. 8)

Yeah that stuff works awesome. I've used spray lacquers and enamels both with great success.
