    I am building the Pocher Aventador roadster. While Pocher was nice enough to paint the Lamborghini script and the lines on the top of the intake the plastic doesn't have the texture of the real car.

    So I clear coated the letters and the lines (all the white) then after that dried I applied Micro Mask and let that dry.

    I used texture black from a rattle can and it came out great except for one big problem.
    The micro mask is impossible to get off. Comes off with soap and water...I think not.

    It would have been easier to just paint over them and then repaint the script.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Try looking at the other builds on the site, maybe there are some hints.

    Oh man yes I should do that...I didn't think about that. ��
    Just kidding...

    I looked at a lot of builds and some say Micro Mask is great and some say it's not. They all agreed that putting down some clear first was important; so I did that. I searched the web and even contacted micro scale. They just claim it just comes off with soap and water which is why you have to use a petroleum based paint which I did. I tried lightly sanding Micro Mask...Macro problem it and that won't even take it off it just gets soft and then hardens back over.

    "For easy detail masking Micro Mask...Macro problem " yeah it's easy to apply
    " cleans up with water" sure washes Micro Mask...Macro problem right off

    " peeling it away" No!!!

    The most visible part of my build is ruined by the very product designed to protect it. Now I will have to order a replacement.
