Top Notch TNM48-M83: Mustang Pattern D  Camouflage Masks

PRICE: 10.00.
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Vinyl Mask Set

An accessory that has been growing in popularity over the years are vinyl mask sets. Mostly they were used for canopy masks and have become very popular. Another use for these have been for camouflage masks.

This is one of several sets that Top Notch offers and it is for the P-51B/C Merlin Mustang. In line with the previous masks for the Allison Mustangs, it includes masks for the white wing and stabilizer stripes. Also included is a mask for the fuselage band. Often times the serial number was just masked over and I am pretty sure that is what the little rectangles are for though the instructions don't mention them. These items need to be painted then masked prior to the other masks. It does not appear to include the leading edge yellow but that is easy enough to do. You'll notice that the masks are applied after the grey is painted in place. The set includes two sheets and I've not shown them as they will simply look like grey-green rectangles.

These are available in all major scales with this set being in 1/48.
