I notised that were you removed the tape has damaged the paint, to stop this use an under coat then sand using a light grade sand paper, 280 and up and make sure you allow paint to dryu for a few days before you apply the tape , I know you did not ask but it will help if you use this method.
I do clear coats in between layers of colour.
if the tape damages the coat underneath its only a clear coat, easy fix.
also what Jinto said, give the layers plenty of time to cure.
I know it's hard to paint slowly because it is so gratifying, but the paint job either makes or breaks a kit.
apart from that I'm liking that red ALOT, talk about vivid.
going to post more in a bit
Looking good its coming together nicely.
Nice, you nocked that up qwikly , Good job.
