This is a masking set for the Hasegawa F-104G. The masks are cut from yellow tape, similar to Eduard masks and the set includes masks for all three sections of the Hasegawa F-104G as well as masks for each of the tires. There are three separate masks for the three windscreen panels and there are two masks for both of the other two sections of the canopy. As with Eduard's masks, the masks for the larger portions of the canopy establish the borders or the canopy leaving an open section in the middle that will need to be filled with either liquid mask, scotch tape or some other materials to protect the center of the canopy section.

The set also includes masks for the wheel allowing the tires to be painted black, the masks applied and the for the wheel hubs to be painted. As with the mask for the larger portions of the canopy, the areas outside of mask will need to be covered with some other material to keep paint off of the rest of the wheel.

Even though there are no directions included, installation of the masks needs no explanation if you have used any mask set before. Some of the edges on my set were not completely cut through, so be careful when removing the mask from the backing sheet to ensure it comes off cleanly and does not stretch or deform if it is still attached.


Thank you to Resin Improvement for the review sample and IPMS/USA for letting me try it out.
