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.

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

ASK has sent a bunch of masking sets for review. I have broken them down by scale. Tonight we start off with six new releases in 1/48 scale. These are all Double-Sided:

 

M48147 - F-14D Super Tomcat Double Sided Masks for AMK kit. 8,40 €

 

 

Double sided set with interior and exterior canopy masks.


M48149 - F-86D Double Sided Masks for Revell kit. 8,40 €

Conclusion
