    I don't use after market masks Ian, and for camouflage, I just mark the pattern in pencil and then spray to the lines, but most mask sets are made from a similar material to Kabuti tape, the type that Tamiya masking tape is made from. Others are made using a vinyl type of material, and in both cases, they're normally pre-cut to shape (normally on a laser plotter) on a backing sheet. Peel off and use, basically.
    Some of the other guys will probably chip in with more details I would think.

    So its basically masking tape, that's not for me then! Only spotted them on ebay in my weekly quest to find Lancaster related items.

    Check the details for the particular product Ian, as many are the vinyl type, which are much better. Personally, I don't see the need for the extra expense, as you could make your own if needed, and with the pre-cut versions, you'd have to position them precisely, otherwise it defeats the object.

    The only AML masks I've seen were vinyl (or at least vinyl like).

    Cheers
