British aircraft have hard edged fairly standard paint schemes. This can be a blessing and a boon for modelers. Well it has been made infinitely easier thanks to Eduard.

Packaged in a ziplock bag, Eduard provides you two sheets of Kabuki tape masks which I think is the best masking medium out there. If you aren’t familiar with Kabuki tape, it is the same stuff that Tamiya tape is made of. You can tell if it is properly down because it is slightly see through. The one sheet has the fuselage halves on it and the other has the wings, tail and some extra strips. They are all easy to apply and they fit perfectly.

I’ve used these types of masks from Eduard on some Spitfire kits and they work perfectly. This makes the arduous task of masking simple and easy. If you are careful when you remove them they can be used multiple times.

The question is do you need the scheme A or B? Well that depends on the actual aircraft. It was originally thought that the schemes varied with even number serial numbers getting the A scheme and the odd numbers got the B one. That is not always the case. So bottom line you’ll have to decide on your aircraft and choose the appropriate scheme. Thankfully Eduard offers both the A and B scheme masks.

Easy to apply, simple and effective masks that will save you a lot of time and add to the accuracy of your paint scheme for an attractive price, what more can you ask for? While the masks are designed specifically for the Airfix kit they could easily be used on any Hurricane kit. These masks makes the chore of masking easy and fast. And who wouldn’t want to be done with this chore quickly? Thanks Eduard for making my job easier.

Highly recommended
