Maketar produces a series of paint masks which provide a nice alternative to using decals, especially with this set. In this release, Maketar has engineered a nice set of markings for two subjects sized for the HK Models' 1/32 B-25J Mitchell glass nose kit.
This set provides window and wheel masks as well as masks for national and distinctive airframe markings for two subjects:
- B-25J-15-NA, 44-29090, 486 BS/340 BG, 6E, as flown by 1Lt Billy McVee
- B-25J-20-NA, 43-28080, 486 BS/340 BG, 6E, 'Who Cares'
These masks will render the major markings on the airframe in paint which makes the job of aging and weathering the markings as well as the airframe far easier/more consistent whithout the problem of washes flowing around the edges of your decal film. Give these a try!
My sincere thanks to Maketar for this review sample.
