Canopy & Wheel Masks
Special Mask, 1/72 scale
Special Hobby has recently launched a new brand, Special Mask, which is pretty self explanatory.
Tonight I am examining three masking sets for new kits from Special Hobby and Azur FRROM.
These are presented in a dark yellow colour as self-adhesive, die-cut masks.
Each set is accompanied by illustrated instructions with numbering to assist application.
I am a mask devotee, and sure, the SF-260 doesn't look like masking would be too much of a chore, but I will still be happy to benefit from the accuracy and crisp demarcation delivered by these pre-cut masks.
However, check out the B-10. There are 99 individual masks, some very small, and that does not include the wheels.
Imagine the time, precision and effort required to cut these yourself.
Pass the die-cut masks please...
What can I say? I'm a lazy modeller and I love self-adhesive canopy masks!
The set for the multiple intricate glasshouses of the Martin B-10 is particularly welcome.
Thanks to Special Hobby for the sample.
