Has anyone used masking fluid by Tamiya?

I'm thinking about using it but I don't really know anything about it and wondering what others think about the masking fluid.

I've only used Microscale's Micro Mask and Abteilung's Liquid Mask .
I assume the Tamiya has similar properties .
It's Tamiya , so you know it most likely doesn't suck :p :D

Those 2 I use work great -- although I use exclusively the Abteilung one now .
It's not possible to have paint bleed under it . Well , not unless you paint it down onto a contaminated surface but you wouldn't do that ;)

I'm about to use a whole bunch of it when I paint that BV 155 .

Unrelated question, but is the BV 155 a hybrid prop/jet interceptor?

Cool thanks for the info. I just want an easier mask to use that won't bleed. I can't seem to find a masking tape that won't bleed through.
