  1. Pre-Cut Canopy Masks for Various Kits & Scales 1:72, 1:48 & 1:32 Special Mask by Special Hobby Some modellers are a little bit phobic about masking the canopies of our models to keep them crystal clear during the building and painting process, as they can be tricky if you’re inexperienced or a bit ham fisted. Special Hobby have created their own Special Mask line to help with that, and we’ve got a bundle of them in the review queue in various scales. Supplied on a sheet of yellow kabuki tape, these pre-cut masks give you a full set of masks for the canopy, with compound curved handled by using frame hugging masks, while the highly curved gaps are in-filled with either liquid mask or offcuts from the background tape. In addition, you usually get a set of hub/tyre masks for the wheels, allowing you to cut the demarcation perfectly with little effort. They each arrive in a flat polythene packet with a card header behind and a sheet of instructions sandwiched between them, all held together by a single staple. 1:72 CH-37 Mojave Canopy & Wheel Masks (M72046 for Special Hobby) Kit review here 1:72 Spitfire Mk.22/24 & Seafire Mk.46/47 Canopy & Wheel Masks (M72048 for Special Hobby) Kit review here 1:48 AF-2 Guardian Canopy & Wheel Masks (M48014 for Special Hobby) Kit review here 1:48 AH-1Q/S Cobra Inside/Outside Canopy Masks (M48016 for Special Hobby) Kit review coming soon 1:48 Grunau Baby IIb Canopy & Fabric/Flying Control Surfaces (M48017 for Special Hobby) Kit review coming soon 1:32 T-2 Buckeye Canopy & Wheel Masks (M32008 for Special Hobby) Kit review coming soon Conclusion Pre-cut mask sets save a lot of precious modelling time and don’t cost a ton of money, so they’re always worth picking up, even if you’re not averse to masking. Add in the new Inside/Outside masks to the mix, and they’re a great boost to realism in my estimation. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  2. J-3 Cub Inside/Outside Masks (M48015) 1:48 Special Hobby We’ve just completed our review of the latest boxing of this light-weight spotter/reconnaissance aircraft that served during WWII and beyond, with a healthy number still flying today. You can see our review here, and if you check the aftermarket section, you’ll also see some detail upgrades such as the awesome 3D printed engine here. Supplied on a sheet of yellow kabuki tape with a pre-weeded perimeter, these pre-cut masks supply you with a full set of masks for the canopy both inside and out, the clarity of which will be important due to the large expanses down the sides of the aircraft. In addition, you get a set of hub/tyre masks for the wheels and the roof light between the wings, allowing you to cut the demarcation perfectly with little effort. Since using this innovative masking style on a recent build of an F4F-3 Wildcat, I have become a huge fan of inside/outside masks, and will search out a set for any of my future builds thanks to the realism, crispness and extra detail they bring to the canopy area. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  3. AH-1G Cobra Inside/Outside Masks (M48005 for Special Hobby) 1:48 Special Masks If you’ve spent time making your new AH-1G Cobra model from Special Hobby (reviewed here), you should probably consider making the best of the clear canopy using this new masking set from Special Masks. It arrives in a flat pack with a card backing and a sheet of kabuki-style tape sheet inside that has been pre-cut with masks specifically for the new model. these pre-cut masks supply you with a full set of masks for the canopy, with compound curved handled by using frame hugging masks, while the highly curved gaps are in-filled with either liquid mask or offcuts from the background tape. The masks are duplicated in a slightly smaller form for the inside of the canopy to allow the modeller to paint the interior for a more realistic-looking finish. Highly recommended.
