Suggested scale: 1/48
Suggested kit: HK Models #01F005 Avro Lancaster B Mk.I
Re-usable die-cut mask set
Four Paint Options included in this set
The set includes two 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.
Avro Lancaster B Mk.I Numbers and Insignia
paint mask set is designed to be used instead of the decals included in the HK Models #01F005 kit. 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 aircraft model. Due to the significant size of the Avro Lancaster in quarter scale, this is the best method for markings application.
Masks instead of Decals
Not all of the decals can be substituted with masks and this is due to various reasons. However, major and important elements of the Insignia, lettering and numbering of the aircraft can be applied with painting. This set covers the versions included in #01F005 and are designed specifically for that kit in 48th scale. All of the items included in the set are visible on the masks sheets featured on the cover. The HK Models Lancaster Mk.I in 48th scale features two paint options. This set features total of four, two of which are similar to the larger scale Lancaster released from the same company couple of years ago. This doubles the variants included in #01F005 and provides better quality of the final appearance.
