The Academy F-4 series finally brought the Phantom into the present with regards to mold technology. I've said it many times I hate to mask canopies. Eduard's masks are made out of Kabuki tape which makes them flexible and able to conform to bends in the windows. In my opinion Kabuki tape is the premier masking medium.

This set is designed for the Academy F-4D, but it will fit the Academy or Eduard F-4C as well. You will need to use liquid mask to complete this set. There are 12 masks included in the set. This set will ensure that the canopy has crisp edges with minimal work.

These worked to perfection on my recent Eduard F-4D. They were easy to add and easy to remove. They performed flawlessly. If you are careful you can replace them back on the sheet and maybe able to use them again.

I've used Eduard's masks before and I can tell you that they perform flawlessly. They are perfectly fitted and are easy to apply. They take significantly less time and provide perfect results with minimal costs. I will use them again and consider them essential items to ease all my builds.

Highly recommended
