Don, I did misspell the name of the tape. The correct spelling is TAMIYA and it is on Amazon under Tamiya America masking tape. Enjoy. Aloha, MikeJ

Don, I made a mistake a few months ago when I attached instructions to you on how to spile. This was the intellectual property of Tony Lavine and copyrighted and I shouldn't have posted it. I've taken it down and I want you to know not to use it or forward it without contacting Ms. Lavine for permission. MikeJ
