Contents.

Eduards very useful range of die cut paint masks now includes a set for the HobbyBoss 1/48 Ta 152H. With this release you have masks for kit parts:

-Canopy.
-Windscreen.
-Main and Tail wheels.

The masks for the windscreen and canopy are split into components to avoid the kinks in the masks trying to blend one piece masks. There are four masks for the canopy, and three for the windscreen. The canopy will need some additional masking using either tape or liquid mask. The masks for the wheels are always a very welcome inclusion as it is always difficult to paint wheels without straying into the hub or tyre, no matter how careful we are. The masks for the wheels cover the hubs.
Contents come in a small semi resealable bag, reinforced with stiff cardboard. Comprehensive instructions are included taking you through the stages of applying the pre-cut Kabuki masks. Care will be needed taking the pre-cut masks away from the backing sheet. I always try to take of the excess Kabuki tape so that you can see the masks better. Keep the excess to one side. A light rub to make sure the masks are secure and then just spray on your paint. Remove the masks when paint is dry and hey presto you should have beautifully sharp edges. A very convenient way of creating a sharper looking Ta 152H
Conclusions.

A very convenient way of making the most of the HobbyBoss kit. This set will certainly speed up the masking progress. Nice one Eduard.

HobbyBoss Ta 152H kit? I know about the Ta 152C from HobbyBoss but was not aware they were also producing a kit of the long wingspan version too, if so, that is great news! Matrixone

As far as I know, Hobby boss only has 1/48 Ta-152 C-0 & C-1.
