I red somewhere that one guy was making templates and spacing them 1/4 " off the surface to get just the correct amount of over spray . , other guys taping of the lines and air brushing the over spray in later ?? any advice welcome. cheers Roger .
Little late here but if you haven't shot the paint yet... I think free-handing it is the best way to go. I lightly outline the pattern based off of historical photos in pencil then airbrush the lighter color first along the pencil lines followed by the darker color. It's really not that hard to do, you can overshoot as much as you want with the lighter color then nail it down accurately with the darker color. I also pre-shade the panel lines in black before my main/ base colors. This gives a more scale effect, just do multiple light coats around the pre-shading until the shading is coming through to your liking.

Trim assemblies from Vailley Aviation in Long Island.


Used some wire to create a hinge as per Brianís suggestion.


Finished product. Sanded and etched.
