Eduard's masks are now all produced in the flexible yellow material similar to that used for Tamiya's masking tape. The masks are strong and flexible, with adhesive that does not let paint "bleed" under the edges. They do not leave marks on the clear parts after removal either.

This months highlights include masks for several potential masking horror stories. Who really wants to sit for a few hours cutting out masks for glasshouse canopies such as a 1/72 scale Dornier Do 17 or a 1/48 scale Wellington? Come on, hands up!

The inclusion of spiral spinner masks for 1/32 and 1/48 scale Focke-Wulf Fw 190s is very helpful too, and will certainly be more precise than trying to paint them yourself.

These pre-cut masks will eliminate the tedium of either task, and will deliver a much more precise and accurate result that most of us could manage.

All Recommended.

Thanks to Eduard for the review samples
