First Look

Eduard produces a wide variety of aftermarket detail sets and decals, as well as full kits. Another useful item in the Eduard line-up are their paint masks made from the very flexible and easy to use yellow tape. These masks are die-cut and ready to work on your project.

In this set, Eduard has produced a mask set designed to mask the windscreen, canopy and wheels of the Kinetic Models 1/48 Mirage IIIE kit. This set is produced from dye-cut yellow-tape masking material and designed specifically to the shapes of the Kinetic kit. If you haven't used masks or have only used vinyl masks, you'll find the yellow-tape masks are easier to apply, easier to remove, and do not leave adhesive behind that require extra clean-up.

This set will definitely speed up your painting as well as provide crisp lines on your next Mirage IIIE project.

My sincere thanks to Eduard for this review sample!
