The Mask set
from DN Models is designed using Airfix #A11006 – Westland Sea King HAS.1/HAS.5/HU.5 1/48. The clear parts featured in this kit will most likely be used in more different releases in the future. The mask set covers all the clear sprue elements, therefore any future kit with the same clear sprue will be covered. The mask set is designed specifically for Airfix tooling and cannot be used with any other kit in quarter scale, like for example Hasegawa Sea King variants. Interior and exterior masks are included in this set.
