The Tamiya Bf-109G-6 is a great model kit. It comes with its own masks but they are not pre-cut nor do they stick to the compound curves very well. Kabuki tape masks work so much better and if they are pre-cut they are the answer to the shortcomings.

New Ware Masks are the answer to those issues. This set is pre-cut on Kabuki tape and provides nearly everything that you'd want to mask off on the kit. More items are included than what is included in the kit. The masks are printed on a 39,5x111 mm sheet of Kabuki tape.

As you'd expect, masks for the canopy are provided as is the normal but unlike the kit masks, this set includes masks for the inside AND outside canopy framing. But this set doesn't stop there. There are masks included for the spiral, the wheels, the radiator faces and all the other clear parts. The one thing not provided is masks for the wingtip lights.

The instructions are printed on a single sided sheet of paper. Step 1 is the interior masking and Step 2 is the exterior. The spinner decal is broken down into three pieces just like the kit decals.

The wheel masks take into account the molded on strut for the tail wheel. Spare masks are provided for the wheels. There are masks for the head armor and the FuG-25 under the wing as well.

Overall this is a great time saving masking set. With everything that needs masking included it makes a great bargain at the price. The only thing I saw missing was the wingtip light masks. For me that it not an issue but it did need to get mentioned. The inclusion of the interior and exterior masks is unique and seems to be the way of the future for the masking medium. An excellent value for the money. Check out their website and the variety of masks available. I'll be buying more of these masks, including the national symbols.

Thanks to New Ware Masks and IPMS/USA for the review sample.
