Dead Design 1/48 A6M2a model 11 Zero canopy masks

KIT #: VM48137
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: For the Eduard kit

This Dead Design offering is a set of masks for the recent release of an A6M2a from Eduard. Thanks to this aircraft having what's known a 'greenhouse' sort of clear parts, masks are very useful and time saving item.

From the looks of it, this is pretty much just a canopy mask set. Masks #26 are for kit part D 50, but since I don't have that kit, I'm not sure what that is. It may well be for the tail wheel.

These are kabuki tape type of masks for those who would rather use that material. As with all the tape masks, one has to have good eyes and lighting to locate the masks so they can be picked out with a blade tip. I've used these in the past and they work as advertised saving a bit of time and a lot of frustration. Well worth picking up.
