LF Models M4831: 1/48 Bf-109E (early)




Scott Van Aken


For the Tamiya, Hasegawa, Airfix, Eduard kit.

An item that has become quite useful to many of us are camouflage masks. This is something that is especially true for some of the more complex 'splinter' schemes used by Luftwaffe aircraft. I have used masks like this in the past and they really are a time saver. With care, they can also be reused a second time.

This set is for the 1/48 Bf-109E. There are a number of excellent kits for these masks and since they are all pretty much the same in terms of shape, they can all benefit from this set.

The set includes two buff squares with the masks cut into them. It is extremely difficult to find the cut lines on these sheets and I had to use a fairly bright flashlight to see them. LF provides a placement guide for the sides and the top as you can see in the illustration of the cover. However, they do not provide a guide on where these sections are located on the sheet. For that you have to visit their web site and print out the guide. Then you have to number it as the numbers are impossible to see on the printed sheet. Apparently they got a lot of feedback on this omission as other, later sets I have include this guide.

I ordered these direct and they took about a month to arrive.
