Eduards very useful range of die cut paint masks now includes masks for the excellent Zvezda 1/72 Mi-24V Hind. If ever a kit needed paint masks to help with the speed of building then this is one of them. There are 29 masks on a small sheet so a little care is needed when removing the masks from the backing sheet. With this release you have masks for kit parts:
-4 x main wheels.
-2 x nose wheel.
-Both windscreens and canopies.
-8 x cabin windows.
Contents come in a small semi resealable bag, reinforced with stiff cardboard. Comprehensive instructions are included taking you through the stages of applying the pre-cut Kabuki masks. Care will be needed taking the pre-cut masks away from the backing sheet. I always try to take off the excess Kabuki tape so that you can see the masks better. Keep the excess to one side. Some liquid mask or use any excess kabuki tape to fill in any areas that need further masking. A light rub to make sure the masks are secure and then just spray on your paint. Remove the masks when paint is dry and hey presto you should have beautifully sharp edges.
Instruction are black line drawings to aid the application of the masks. Also included in the instructions are the kit part numbers to which the masks are applied, which makes life a lot easier.
A very convenient, but not cheap way of creating the most for a very good kit. Nice one Eduard.
