This complete die-cut adhesive mask set is "just what the doctor ordered" to cure the masking blues. Especially if you're building the Revell/Monogram AC-47 Gunship. This must have set includes: wheel mask, landing light mask, observation dome mask, windscreen panel mask, and exterior cabin window mask. The masking media used for this set is the typical high-quality product we've seen and used for years (very similar to Tamiya tape). The die-cut patterns fit perfectly to their respective proper location. They're easily peeled away from the backing paper, and repositioning is just as easy. Preparation before painting is key to a nice looking model and masking plays a vital role in this preparation. The clean sharp edges of perfectly-fitting masking are hard to beat. After placement of the mask, I lightly burnish them with a rounded toothpick to prevent any leakage.

The Bottom Line

A five - star product, I highly recommend this masking set to everyone who plans to build the AC-47. I would like to thank Eduard and IPMS for the opportunity to present this fine offering.
