Hey, clean looking build and nice finish job! How fun was the masking job for the orange, keeping that long separation line nice and straight?

Question

Has anyone built/launched a two-stage version of the Estes Doorknob?

Honestly it was easier than I thought it would be. I just used blue painters tape pulled very taught and just eyeballed it. What really helped was letting the gloss white cure for over a week, tough to be patient but having to use that amount of tape I was sure it would peel or mar the finish. I also let the orange dry for a day and a half before unmasking and it peeled very clean.
