Dead Design 1/48 A6M2a/b model 11/21 Insignia Masks ( without white outline)
|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. This is a set of insignia masks. These masks are without the white outline. In addition, you get masks for the prop stripes, landing gear doors, and the oil/fuel filler caps.
These are really easy to use. Last time I used a set like this, I painted the area white then red. Next, I applied the mask and painted the area around it with the fuselage color. Note that the actual color of the red is somewhat in doubt with some feeling it is fairly bright while others thinking it is a darker red. Though the set states it is for the Eduard kit, in reality you can use it on any 1/48 A6M2/3. By the time the A6M5 arrived, the white outline was pretty standard. If you have never used paint masks for insignia, this would be a great set to do your first. Well worth picking up.
