F-5E paint Masks.

Originally published on:

Eduards very useful range of die cut paint masks now includes AFV Clubs F-5E Tiger II. With this release you have masks for kit parts:

A35 and A36 main wheels.
H32 and H33 nose wheels.
I1 and I7 windscreen and canopy.

Contents come in a small semi resealable bag, reinforced with stiff cardboard. Comprehensive instructions are included taking you through the stages of applying the pre-cut Kabuki masks. Care will be needed taking the pre-cut masks away from the backing sheet. I always try to take of the excess Kabuki tape so that you can see the masks better. Keep the excess to one side. Some liquid mask or using any excess kabuki tape is needed to fill in any areas that need further masking. A light rub to make sure the masks are secure and then just spray on your paint. Remove the masks when paint is dry and hey presto you should have beautifully sharp edges. A very convenient, but not cheap way of creating a better looking F-5E.




SUMMARY
Highs: Very convenient and easy to apply. Saves time and frustration doing your own.
Lows: Not cheap.
Verdict: Highly recommended.
