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 Kitty Hawk released its 1/32 OV-10A/C Bronco kit, Eduard soon followed and included this masking set.
These masks are made from die-cut Kabuki yellow tape material which provide canopy outline masks and wheel hub masks. The surround masks address the edges of the canopy segments and the remaining open areas must be filled in with liquid mask. While this sounds like a hassle, it is even more difficult to create masks that will conform to different contours without even more hassles. This approach is quick and painless.
This is another nice enhancement that will make painting the Kitty Hawk kit 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!
