Custom made paint masks?

Recommended Posts

I have recently thought of having custom masks made for painting the graphic below in order to build a replica of the helicopter that I fly on at work. Due to the complex pattern, and difficulty in masking consistent angles and lines for each layer of color, I had considered having a sign shop make the masks up using vinyl or a sheet of removeable adhesive label material. They have printers/plotters which "cut" the vinyl/label material. This would allow for consistent placement of identical masks. Anyone have any experience with such a concept? Any feedback would be appreciated. Specifically, which material to use, anyone who does such work for modelers, etc.
