Suggested kit: Airfix Hawker Typhoon Mk.Ib #A19003, #A19003A
Re-usable die-cut mask set – Both interior and exterior masks are included
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.
Typhoon Mk.Ib Car Door
canopy and wheels paint mask set is designed to be used with the clear parts of Airfix #A19003 and #A19003A kits. Both Interior and Exterior paint masks are included. The set is designed for the specific version of the Typhoon Mk.Ib /Car Door/ and the Airfix kits only. In 24th scale aircraft kits of that size offer pretty large space that requires every detail to be shown properly, for which interior masks are indispensable.
#A19003 and #A19003A kits are part of the new line of Airfix Typhoons produced in large scale and manufactured according to the new modeling standards. These two differ by the additional Luftwaffe option included in #A19003A set. Mostly due to their size, decal usage for such kits is not recommended. There are other various reasons as well. The single most important one is the realism of the completed model, which can be achieved easily by using masks instead of decals. Masks for scale models present the modeler with the opportunity to show weathered effects, scratches and color variations, which are impossible when using decals. That is valid especially for the insignia of the completed model, but goes for the canopy as well.
