Dead Design 1/48 A-4 Skyhawk paint mask

KIT #: NM48053
PRICE: 6.46 Euros
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: For any appropriate Skyhawk kit

This Dead Design offering is a set of paint masks that cover standard markings for the A-4 Skyhawk. It covers just about all variants that used full size insignia and logos. You get a full set of insignia, a set of USN or USMC fuselage markings, wing walks fuel caps and some  smaller rectangles to do the tailhook stripes. While it states it is for the Hasegawa kit, I see no reason you couldn't use these on any other 1/48 Skyhawk. As a note, the instructions show the insignia to be elongated in the vertical and they are not. However, if using these on a plane with an air refueling probe that had the nose mounted insignia, at least one of them should be, so you need to be cognizant of this.  I've used these in the past and they work as advertised. Well worth picking up.
