Messerschmitt squiggles

I’ve been working on the third Eduard Bf-110 I’ve built this summer and I am working on the desert scheme.  The decals for this kit from Owl show a very fine sets of squiggles; olive over sand.  Other than getting an olive colored pen and drawing them on I’m not sure I get them as fine as the pictures in 1/72 but I am trying something new.

My newly discovered fondness for the blue poster tack has led me into rolling this into fine strings and using this to mask the squiggles.  After painting the kit Olive I am rolling this and adding it to the kit.  Once I get it all done I will clean it up a bit with some tweezers and spray sand.

The main issue I have is that it is about 85 in the garage tonight and it make the blue stuff really tacky so it sticks to everything but the model.  But it’s starting to look good.
