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. HobbyBoss actually released its single-seat Yak-38 Forger kit nearly five years ago and Eduard has now released this set to mask the windscreen, canopy, 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 your early Soviet/Russian VSTOL fighter 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!
