    You are well on your way and ahead of the learning curve . . . and I see you've got the flight webbing figured out. Little more grooming on the body and Taxi world look out. Just a personal opinion I'd switch to painters tape not masking. But that's from my experience and my preference. Great job Sir.

    If you are going to continue to use that type of tape you can do the old jeans trick. Take a piece you want to use lightly stick it to your jeans , t-shirt and pull it off then tape the tail or wings. Used it for years just prefer Painters these days.

    no matter what tape you use you will have a dergree of residue......sometimes wont show for a while but will in time.....best to use carding and insect pins or clips,magnets
