Mig-31BM/BSM Masks (for AMK)
1:48 HGW Models

The superb new Mig-31 from AMK has quite a lot of glazing, and some of the windows are an odd shape, so a mask set would be a handy tool to have on-hand. HGW have been working hard on this Wünderkit, and have a few additional items that will be along shortly. The masks are pre-cut to shape, and are made from a very thin, flexible film that has a translucent pale grey colour. Each part is numbered on the instruction sheet, and the diagrams show where each one fits on the corresponding kit part.

The masks cover the full surface of each panel, and should be easy to fit due to their translucency, with each one fitting snugly down, but adding very little in the way of thickness, which reduces the chances of paint build-up around the edges. As well as every canopy and windscreen panel, there are also masks for the coaming between the pilots and both of the landing lights in the nose gear bay door.

As the Foxhound often had liberal quantities of pinkish sealant goo applied around the edges of the windscreens, if you have the initial edition without the decals for this, try adding a thin strip of tape around the edges of the masks (once applied) after airbrushing some pink paint around the canopy. Remember to add some interior green first though, so it doesn't show through!
