A6M3 Model 32 mask set

This mask set is for the Tamiya A6M3 Model 32 Zero, which has one of those greenhouse canopies that always seem to be a pain to paint, so the release of this mask set is a welcome sight for those of us who hate painting canopies.
The set is packed in a plastic pouch with a cardboard insert separating a small set of instructions and the mask set on one sheet of Kabuki tape.
The set is of the usual high quality Kabuki tape, and are pre-cut. This set covers all the glazing and wheel hubs.
The masks cover all of the glass so you will not need to fill the middle in with any masking liquid or tape.
As with most mask sets, making sure the masks are snugly fitted along the frames and only using light coats of paint should see the masks detach easy enough.
This set provides easy and time saving solution for painting the canopy and wheel hubís on your A6M3 Zero.

Please remember, when contacting retailers or manufacturers, to mention that you saw their products highlighted here - on Aeroscale.
SUMMARY
Highs: Good quality tape. A welcome time saver.
Lows: A bit on the expensive side.
Verdict: A welcome release for those who hate masking the Zero's greenhouse canopies.

FROM: ENGLAND - SOUTH EAST, UNITED KINGDOM

I started modelling in the 70's with my Dad building Airfix aircraft kits. The memory of my Dad and I building and painting a Avro Lancaster on the kitchen table will always be with me. I then found a friend who enjoyed building models, and between us I think we built the entire range of 1/72 Airfi...
