Jolly Rogers B-24 Liberators
paint mask set is designed to be used with Hobby Boss B-24 Liberator kits. The mask set is dedicated to one of the most famous bomber groups that used B-24 Liberators -90th. Their skull and cross-bombs can be seen in various colors and in slightly different applications from aircraft to aircraft. This set allows for replicating most of them, but excludes the specific nose art of each aircraft. 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.
features insignia and numbers, two types of cross-bombs, rudder stripes and the famous skull of the 90th BG. Numbers are presented in two variations depending on the specific airplane. The differ slightly. Almost any combination is doable with the set. Some of the airplanes featured modified skull and cross-bombs, probably painted by the ground crews. Those can be modified by hand over the original skull included in this set. Being re-usable and including all the numbers from 0 to 9, this set allows for more than one aircraft to be painted.
