Allied Stars and Medical Crosses Paint Mask Stencils for Tanks & Soft Skin Vehicles WWII
Suggested Scale: 1/48
Re-usable die-cut camo mask set
The set includes one sheet of pre-cut masks (shown in the picture). The masks are made from thin masking tape, which is easy to be peeled off and doesn’t leave any stains. The tape is tested on clear and painted model too. If carefully removed after painting, they can be used over and over again. It is flexible and easily applied over curved surfaces. Semi-transparent for easy and accurate placing.
Suitable for various Allied Armored Vehicles from WWII. Features medical crosses. The set includes several sizes of stars and medical crosses which will cover most of the range in 48th scale. Some of the masks will cover 35th scale as well. Post-war vehicles are doable, including such from Korean war and even Vietnam.
Allied Stars and Medical Crosses stencils set in 35th scale is very popular among modelers. Due to the large number of requests for 48th scale option, the set 48/827-050 was designed. Of course, it was modified slightly from its original appearance. Allied Stars will suit Tamiya’s 48th scale armor perfectly and will improve the appearance they offer. Tamiya decals are quite thick and in 48th scale that can cause troubles. Especially weathering-wise. Allied Stars set will come as a solution to that matter.
Allied Stars and Medical crosses
are suitable for all 48th scale armor, not only as Tamiya decals substitute. The painted star or cross will offer easy and realistic chipping, which cannot be achieved with a decal. However, some experience is needed and we suggest that you test them aside before you apply. Since the masks are re-usable, you will have no troubles repeating the procedure over and over again. Medical crosses are too, covering a wider range than just the quarter scale they are designed for. Many medical vehicles feature smaller crosses in the bigger /35th/ scale. In some cases, 72nd scale can use the smaller parts of this set to represent bigger for their appearance markings. These are – of course – only some of the options available.
In case you decide to use the set for 35th scale armor, we advise to check the size using reference materials first. Have in mind, that some vehicles, especially post-war US armor offer various sizes of white stars painted over them. Such vehicles are M113s and some of the soft-skinned options available. That will allow for wider range of applications of this set, thus you will be able to use it for more than one scale. However, we advise to use your best judgement in order to achieve maximum realism with your model.
