The set includes three 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.
was one of the initial versions of the McDonnell Douglas Phantom II. It was made in more than 600 copies which makes it among the most produced variants of the Double Ugly. It served in the US NAVY and Marines and gained its fame in the skies over Vietnam. Most US warplanes at that time were painted in high-visibility camouflages and insignia. Phantoms used on aircraft carriers were covered in very light gray tones, which, combined with the red, white and blue insignia of the stars made them very distinctive. That was made even more vivid by applying various squadrons’ specific insignia over the tail fin, back and nose, making them look like an airshow painted planes, not war machines.
from Tamiya is the kit recommended to make the F-4B in 32nd scale. A conversion set is required, since Tamiya 1/32 Phantom out of the box is a different modification. However, measurements of this set are taken from Tamiya’s kits in 32nd and 48th and should fit any decent kit of the F-4B in 32nd scale. VF-111 Sundowners paint scheme is one of the most popular early Phantoms’ options, featured in many releases in different smaller scales. There is also a CAG option, which feature slightly different shark mouth as well as different colors on the vertical stabilizer. This 32nd DN Models mask set represents standard F-4B Sundowners scheme with red and white marking on the tail fin.
