FirstLook

 

Art Scale Kit seems to be a reasonably new company but their range of products is rapidly expanding.

Amongst these are their growing "Scale Mask" series. These are die-cut, self-adhesive masks on yellow "Kabulki" paper - a slightly flexible material that will allow enough flex to sit down into recesses or cope with curves, yet remains rigid enough to keep their shape.

 

 

Most releases are available as either One Sided or Double-Sided. Not surprisingly, single sided sets cover the outside of the canopy, while the Double-Sided sets provide masks for the inside as well as the outside of canopies.

It is nice to be given the choice.

 

 

Today I am examining the One-Sided and Double-Sided masking sets for the big beautiful Airfix 1/24 scale Hawker Typhoon Mk.Ib..

Both sets have individually numbered masks making it easy to keep track of where you are.

 

 

Wheel masks are included with both sets too.

The Aifix Tiffie is a spectacular model and certainly justifies making additional investments on accessories such as these canopy masks.

 

 

The choice is yours whether you use the One-Sided or Double-Sided versions.

 

 

Conclusion

 

Hands up everyone who loves cutting and applying canopy masks from tape. Anyone? Thought not! ASK's growing range of die-cut, self adhesive masks will be a fast and easy way to get accurately painted canopy frames and wheel hubs

Thanks to Art Scale Kit for the samples
