Suggested scale: 1/32

Suggested kit: Hobby Boss B-24 Liberator #83211

The set includes four sheets 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.

Assembly Ship B-24 Liberators

paint mask set is designed to be used with Hobby Boss #83211 kit. The mask set is dedicated to one of the many Assembly Ship aircraft, used to gather formations of many similar Liberators and send them on their mission. Assembly ships were also called Judas Goats, due to the similar role that they represent. Also called Formation ships, those were usually old aircraft lacking armament and often painted with bright colors and featuring additional lightning. Due to the many specific and colorful items featured on this Liberator, masking and painting those out is the most realistic way of representing this particular scheme. Since decals have carrier film and cannot be weathered with enough realism, this set provides an alternative approach to solving that problem. Application of paint instead of decals present you with the option to chip the paint and alter the colors of the insignia and numbers, as well as to avoid decals carrier film seen on the decal. Due to the enormous size of the B-24 Liberator in 32nd scale, this is the best method for markings application.

Tubarao

is an Assembly Ship from 491st BG. Tubarao means “Shark” in Portuguese. The plane features big shark mouth and zebra stripes which makes it a very distinctive Judas Goat. The combination of colors is also an unusual one. The aircraft served by the end of the war and unlike most of the Assembly Ships, this one kept its armament. Original aircraft was B-24J-145-CO with serial #44-40101.
