  2. Work with masking is difficult. I found it is necessary to make sure the tape, has no air, all is on the surface, then no paint can go under the tape, usually using white tamiya masking tape for all corners. Well for me to take tape off i need the paint to be strong, because can easy scratch it, so i leave it for couple of hours, if using tamiya paints. It really depends on the paints.
