  1. Remove Before Flight Tags White/Black (3DL48051 & 52) 1:48 Eduard SPACE Eduard have joined the 3D printed decal revolution with their SPACE range, and we’re becoming used to them producing their instrument panel sets, which are great by the way. I’ve used a set recently and they’re as good in use as they look on the decal paper, and now we have new sets of Remove Before Flight (RBF) tags in two flavours with white or black writing on a standard red tag. As usual with Eduard's Photo-Etch (PE), SPACE and Mask sets, they arrive in a flat resealable package with appropriate branding, a white backing card protecting the contents and the instructions that are sandwiched between. Each sheet contains 38 tags that are approximately 17mm x 2mm, and are printed in red, with inset “Remove Before Flight” text in white or black, depending on which set you’re looking at. There are eight types, all differing very subtly in terms of text size and placement apart from number 8, which has text printed on the rear too. Those were the ones I used to test them out, mainly so I could see how the text looked. It looks great. In use they’re very simple and you just cut one out and place it in water for a few seconds until you can remove the tag from the backing paper. I dabbed the decals on kitchen roll to remove excess moisture, then crinkled them a little in my hands. The end result is very realistic due to the thickness, the manner in which the material flexes, and the silvery ring on the top edge that finishes the look. Conclusion A very realistic-looking set of RBF tags that will give your models an extra degree of authenticity when you’re depicting your model on the ground and at rest. Very highly recommended.

  2. Remove Before Flight Tags UK (32923) 1:32 Eduard These are a set of modern UK style remove before flight tags. There are 18 shorter tags and 52 of the longer tags. These are in the new more flexible steel material. Review sample courtesy of
  3. STEEL Remove Before Flight Tags 1:32 Eduard Modern combat aircraft seem festooned with RBF tags. This sheet contains 14 RBF tags of five different types, these have a loop of fine wire adding to attach them to the protective covers that adorn intake FOD barriers, seeker head protectors etc. Some are red with white printing, others with black printing, so check your references to see which type the operator of your model use. This set had printing on both sides, so you won't need to do any tricky paint matching, and there is some text on the back-side for some designs too. Being of the new Steel design like the seatbelts the modeller will be able to bend and shape them without worrying about the paint flaking off, so they should look ore realistic. Conclusion These will add a nice final touch to any model. Recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  4. Remove Before Flight (Steel) 1:72 Eduard It doesn't seem that long ago that Eduard released a set of photo etched RBF tags in this scale (although on checking it was actually four years ago), but here they are with a brand new set containing eight different types of tags. You can hardly blame them for releasing another set, as apparently their RBF tags are one of their best sellers. I like items such as these as they can add a superb sense of scale and realism to a finished model. With the addition a few items like these, you can easily imagine your model sitting on the flight line, fuelled up and ready for action. The strips of metal that connect the tags to the fret are pretty fine, so with a little care you should be able to remove them without damaging the paint. You might want to consider applying some masking tape to the back of the fret before your start though, just in case any of the tags ping off into the ether. Once removed, careful treatment will be needed in order to give the tags a more realistic twist. I say careful as if you manhandle these items, I imagine the paint could flake off. That wouldn’t be the end of the world as you could easily touch them up, but it would be a nuisance nonetheless Conclusion I can already imagine some of my finished models bombed up, with a handful of these tags fitted. All-in-all, these should be a really cost effective way of injecting a bit of realising to a finished model. Recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  5. Remove Before Flight Tags (UK) 1:48 Eduard A modern aircraft on the flight-line will usually have lots of Remove Before Flight (RBF) tags flapping in the breeze. They are attached to sensor covers, Foreign Object Debris covers and locking pins, and draw attention to their continued presence if they should have been removed prior to the aircraft's departure. Adding them to a model gives a sense of scale and realism that is highly desirable (to this modeller at least), but they aren't always that easy to get hold of, or make yourself. Now they are. This set contains 26 long, 26 medium and 18 short tags on a fret of Photo-Etch (PE) metal 7cm x 4.7cm. The tags are etched half-way through the sheet to give them a scale thickness, and they are painted on both sides with a typical red/white diagonal stripe. At one end is an eye where the tag is tied to the cover, and as well as a hole in the tag, there is a tiny border of bare metal that depicts the eye itself. Removal of the tags is straightforward, as the sprue-gates are thin and at each end of the tags. Pressure with the end of a curved blade on a hard surface should see them cut through, and if you are careful with the cut, no cleaning up or touching up should be needed. Conclusion These tags are a useful tool for any builder of modern jets to have on hand, and once cut off, a quick twist will give them a more natural dog-eared appearance. The parts are numbered, but as there are no instructions the modeller will have to check his references to see where each tag is most likely used. A fully loaded jet with tags fluttering in the imagined breeze looks impressive, and Eduard have now given us all the tools to do one of our own. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
