Montex SM72096: 1/72 Do-217E




Scott Van Aken


For the Italeri kit.


An item that has become a 'must have' for many modelers are canopy masks. These are designed to fit specific kits and the benefit of these is that you don't have to cut the tape when it is on the canopy. This will help to prevent issues with the knife slipping (been there).

Montex is one of many of the folks who produce these sorts of masks and while others use paper tape, Montex chooses to use vinyl. I've used both types and it doesn't seem to make any difference. One thing is that the amount of time it takes to do this and cut on the canopy is about the same. However, you get a cleaner presentation with preformed masks.

This set is for the Italeri 1/72 Do-217E and is well worth the money if you are not fond of doing greenhouse canopies and multi-frame bomber noses. I'm not and have been a convert to this type of product for these applications.
