First Look

As you know, Eduard produces a wide range of aftermarket detail sets for aircraft, armor, and ship kits. When a new and noteworthy kit is released, Eduard will usually follow within a few months with one or more detail sets to enhance that kit. When Revell reissued the Monogram AC-47 Gunship kit, Eduard released this set to mask the windscreen, side windows, and wheels of the kit.

These masks are made from die-cut Kabuki yellow tape material which provide window and wheel hub masks which will make the job of camouflaging and weathering 'Puff the Magic Dragon' or whatever other subject you're rendering easy.

This is another nice enhancement that will make painting the Revell or Monogram kits quick and easy. Using this set with the other releases from Eduard will raise the level of detail in this kit to a higher level.

My sincere thanks to Eduard for this review sample!
