Masking the Sand Scorcher for painting

I've been busy masking off areas of the Sand Scorcher to paint its complex blue and white colour scheme. The body shell is currently all painted in Tamiya TS-26 Pure White, and now it's time to start layering on the French Blue sections. There are some pretty complex curves that need masking - it's easily the most boring part of the entire build so far...

Luckily I recently bought some Tamiya 5mm masking tape. It's really pliable and hugs the curves well. If I was trying to do this just with plain old buff masking tape, I'd be in a world of pain.

That white roll is the Tamiya masking tape.

Almost ready to paint. Now I just have to cross my fingers that none of the blue seeps under the masked off areas, as I imagine trying to remove any stray blue from the pure white areas would be an absolute nightmare.
