First Look

Furball Aero-Design produces a nice variety of aftermarket decal sets, and now they've addressed another useful area - paint masks. Here is one of their latest releases, a mask set for the Tamiya 1/48 F-16C Fighting Falcon and they've done something a bid different. This set provides paint masks that are die-cut from black vinyl to outline the canopy for any of Tamiya's F-16C kits (you'll need a liquid mask or other medium to blank off the rest of the canopy). In addition, there are wheel hub masks included.

This set will make painting of the F-16C kit easier whether you're replicating one of subjects provided in the Tamiya kit or using one of the many excellent F-16C decal subjects also produced by Furball Aero-Design. Nice work guys!

My sincere thanks to Furball Aero-Design for this review sample!
