BR-20 mask
Eduard's 1:48 scale BR-20 mask sheet comes in a small plastic bag and is protected from bending by a cardboard sheet. Instructions are provided as well and are printed in black & white on both sides of an A5 sized piece of paper.

The sheet of masks destined to the twin engined Italian bomber is quite complex and comprises almost 80 self adhesive pieces one will have to place over the kit's clear parts prior painting This will represent quite a lot of work but far less than if you would cut the masks by yourself!

Masks are provided for the frontal glazings, the cockpit greenhouse, the upper turret, the side windows and the wheels. In some place the instructions ask you to use liquid mask but you can also use the material left over from the sheet.

Conclusion
This is an useful sheet of masks and one that will save you a lot of time when building Special Hobby's BR-20.

Please remember, when contacting retailers or manufacturers, to mention that you saw their products highlighted here - on AeroScale.
SUMMARY
Highs: A big time saver!
Lows: Price may be a little high.
Verdict: This reference will make the masking of the Special Hobby kit easier.
