Masking over paint?


my head is falling off my head

i tried posting this question in the tamiya paint thread maybe i'll have better look if i just start a new one. How long should one wait before putting masking tape on tamiya paint jobs???????
I usually wait about a day. But often it's a moot point for me because I only get the odd day every week to work on a kit... :-[

Hope this helps. The other guys might advise waiting less time...

Have a Happy New Year.
For the paint job I just finished I waited 24 hours. But I was using Testors acrylics. Be careful of what you use for a base coat. Other types of paint does not ad hear very well to Rust-oleum metallic paints. I am speaking from experience here.
