Eduard has previously issued "Remove Before Flight" tags made out of colored photoetch. This fresh set capitalizes on the new fabric material used in conjunction with their photoetch components. This set is for 1/48 scale planes, and it has one sheet of 16 fabric tags with two styles: one with a square end and one with a tapered end. The photoetch fret contains 20 of two types of attachment hangers.

To give these tags a test run, I pulled a Kinetic A-6E out that had FOD covers on it. Removing the fabric tab from the backing is easy. They are, however, very fragile and want to tear almost like vinyl. The backing sheet is adhesive, and the tags come off a little sticky. If you set the tags aside for a little while, they'll lose most of their stickiness and will be easier to handle. They have an excellent fabric look as you can see from the pictures. I attached one to each FOD cover.

This set is very nice and supplies 16 tags for a reasonable price. They look much more realistic than the photoetch tags, and can be used on many modern aircraft. They would look great in dioramas and for planes built stowed. I definitely recommended them.

My thanks to Eduard and IPMS/USA for the chance to review this great set.
