Res-Im (Resin Improvement) is a new company to me out of the Czech Republic. After checking out their website it appears they offer a variety of items, photo etch, masks, and resin, but how good is it? Let’s find out.
The first item I got for review was a canopy mask set for the AZ Models AH-1G. Packaged in a ziplock baggie you get one sheet of masks for one aircraft.
I hate to mask canopies and it is even worse in 1/72nd scale. Made of the famous Kabuki tape this small sheet contains the outline of the canopy and will need to be filled in with a liquid mask. This is the only way to do this type of canopy with all the compound curves.
My only problem with this or any of the Kabuki tape masks is that it is yellow tape printed on a yellow background. I use a pencil and make a thick patch of lead on a piece of paper then rub the mask over the piece of paper. This will transfer a little bit of the lead to the mask and allow you to see the masks.
