We are a new company producing paint masking products for 1/72nd, 1/48th, 1/32nd, and 1/24th scale models. Our product range will offer a range of national markings, code letters and serials for aircraft and will also include unique masking products which will ease the painting and detailing of your models.
With a life long passion for aviation we want to leverage the experience and attention to detail developed during over 20 years in the aerospace industry in the U.K., Europe and North America to provide the best, easiest to use, scale model paint masks available.
Our goal is to become your supplier of choice for model masking products by producing high quality, well researched, accurate paint masks at an affordable price that are easy to use and produce perfect results every time. We will do everything we can to ensure that our customers are more than satisfied with the service and products we provide.
Our masks are manufactured from 0.003" (0.08mm) thin translucent vinyl masking material which does not mark or lift the underlying paint due to it's low tack adhesive backing. The thin flexible masking material adheres easily to sharp curves and has a slight "stretch" to enable it to conform to surface irregularities. The translucency of the masking material assists in the accurate positioning of the mask.
To ensure the highest quality and accuracy the masks are cut on professional grade high quality computer controlled cutter/plotters capable of cutting to an accuracy of 0.0004" (0.01mm).
Each mask sheet is supplied with full colour instructions and a set of pre-cut transfer vinyl to aid in the positioning and application of the masks. Where space allows, spare masks are also provided on each mask sheet.
Our website is now open for business. Please take a peek and let us know what you think. Our initial products are focussed on RAF and FAA markings but we will be adding to the range on a regular basis and expanding it to include markings of other nations.
We will be making our new product announcements on this forum as well as on our website so check back regularly. We hope that you will enjoy what we have to offer. We accept Visa and Mastercard as well as PayPal for payment.
If you have any questions or suggestions for products please don’t hesitate to contact me at email@example.com , we want to produce masking products which you want to use so your input is important to us and is very much appreciated.
Finally, I’d like to thank Mike Reeves of Two Mikes Resin for his invaluable advice, without it Ad Astra Masks wouldn’t have been born.
