FirstLook

 

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...

 

 

Conclusion

 

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.
