Although the canopy is not complex, it needs to be masked both inside and outside. The frame lines are faint in some areas and using the Eduard masks make the job much easier. There are 10 individual pieces for the inside of the canopy and 6 for the outside. All follow the frame lines, are easy to place and fit perfectly
The EOTS sensor cover on the bottom of the aircraft is also covered in the Eduard set. This piece has molded frames, but once again, they are inconsistent in how sharp they are molded. The pre-cut masks again fit perfectly and are easy to place.
Eduard also includes masks for the wheels so you can paint the tires in whatever black you want to use and then apply the mask and paint the wheels. Once again, these fit perfectly to the kit wheels. There is also a mask for the landing light.
This masking set is a great timesaver and I would highly recommend it to anyone building the Italeri 1/32 F-35A. I would like to thank Eduard and IPMS for giving me the opportunity to use and review this mask set.
