PostSubject: Masking rubber tires   Thu Sep 29, 2016 2:10 pm

Question for everyone. I just got a metal Heng Long Sherman lower and can't seem to find a way to take apart the bogies so that I can remove the rubber tires before painting. So now I am thinking maybe I can mask the rubber tires on the bogies instead. Would masking liquid wrack the rubber tires ? Maybe I can even use hot glue which I know would come off the rubber tires afterwards. I guess I can try masking tape as well and then scrap off any leakage ?

Tape is my friend, although I'd also like to know how they come off Razz

Hobby rubber masking liquid is the easiest to use and no, won't hurt the tires...

When I did mine, I just used painters tape. Any paint that leaked in was easy to scrap off the rubber after it dried.

I paint the wheels then wipe the paint off the tires, carefully, with some isopropyl alcohol before the paint fully cures.

Gives the tires a weathered look, too.

Thanks everyone for all the great ideas. I will try masking tape it as it seems to be the easiest for the time being.
