Eduard Models continues to add these excellent masks sets that save modelers both time and grief when it comes to painting canopies. They are already shaped to the angles and curves of the canopy and are self adhesive. No more trying to shape curves on your own.

This set is designed for the Italeri F-35A. Another nice touch is that they add in masks for the wheels and the EOTS ( Electro Optical Targeting System) mod under the nose.

It doesn't take very much time to put the masks on and once they are on they recommend using liquid masks to cover the exposed areas. I've never been a fan of liquid mask so I just add some Tamiya tape to those areas and the result is very nice. Which ever way you want to do it will work well.

I recommend this mask to modelers of all levels.

I would like to thank Eduard for making a very tedious task easier and IPMS USA for the chance to review this item.
