Simple but brilliant, Eduard's pre-cut canopy masks now include a set for Academy's 1/72 F-4J Phantom II kit.

In this case, simplicity of application was demonstrated by 9 year-old Camden as he built his Academy F-4J Showtime 100 for a related IPMS/USA review. In a matter of minutes, the pre-cut masks were transferred to the model canopy and scraps for left-over mask material were used to fill in the holes. Fit of all pieces was spot-on.

The masks adhered well throughout the construction and finishing process, spanning about 3 weeks' time. At the end of the build, they peeled off with only one slight trace of residual adhesive, which was quickly lifted by the adhesive side of a piece of low-tack masking tape.

A great tool for modelers of all skill levels, Eduard masks are one of the greatest things since sliced bread and injection molding. We rate this mask set as MUST HAVE for anyone wanting to quickly and perfectly mask their 1/72 scale Academy F-4J canopies.

Thanks to Eduard for the review sample and to IPMS/USA the opportunity to provide this review.
