Fine-tip markers to the rescue

I’ve found when doing fine detail work that I sometimes need something besides a paintbrush to complete the job.

If you are painting a model that is white, even if not primed, use a fine-tip marker to get the color that you’re painting into tight areas. (I have not tried this on models primed in white or gray, but it should work there, too.)

The marker helps you get up close to areas where it’s impossible to get tape in place to protect the finish.
