Nice. I used those masks as well... It is a big help and fairly easy to use. Some of the shapes are a bit off, but altogether a very nice tool for getting the 3 tone camouflage on Humvee.

Good work, I'm looking forward to weathering stage.

Very nice! I like the relatively clean NATO camo, very to scale!

Hey - just wondering what happened to the exhaust pipe guard? I think you had it on there before painting.
