Eduard Die-Cut mask for Tamiya Heinkel He219A-7

IPMS/USA Reviews - Wed, 04/10/2019 - 10:32
Product Image

Contents Description

This mask set is provided on a small Kabuki-like tape material that is die cut, and includes an instruction sheet for locating the individual pieces on the clear parts of the Tamiya Heinkel He219A-7 kit. This set also includes masks for the canopy and windscreen interior.

This will be my second Tamiya Heinkel He-219.  I used the earlier version of an Eduard mask on the canopies and was satisfied with the results.  The original masking set included masks for the exterior surfaces only.  I looked forward to see how the new product would perform.

A small instruction sheet is provided with diagrams locating each mask for the multipaned canopy. Where the use of a liquid masking is required is also identified.  The instructions walk the modeler through the process step-by-step which can be quite useful when there are many panels to mask.

Brengun 1/72 TU-160

First things first:  a hearty "Thank you" to Brengun for providing IPMS USA this little gem for review.  We cannot function as well without our manufacturers support, and we sincerely appreciate Brengun's provision of items to review.  Thanks also to John and Phil for finding and distributing these items.

 

This set provides minor detail work for the Trumpeter TU-160.  Big kit.  Big.  Particularly if the wings are in the parked and ready to take off position with flaps and slats out.   Makes a B-1 look like an F-15 when parked next to a "Bone".  The engines are massive, the jet carries a lot, and the White Swan is impressive from any angle.

Tony Buttler was born in England in 1956 and completed his education at Prince Henry's Grammar School in Eyesham.  He joined High Duty Alloys in Redditch in 1974 as a metallurgist and for nearly 20 years he was closely involved in the testing of aluminum and titanium airframe and engine components for many of the world's most important airplanes. It was during this timeframe that his interest in military aircraft grew into a passion. Tony left High Duty Alloys in 1993 Buttler and enrolled at Loughborough University, earning his Masters Degree in Archives and Library Studies.  He subsequently became a freelance aviation historian specializing in the design and development of military aircraft. Since 1995, Tony has been a freelance aviation historian, with this book being his twenty-seventh major release. He has also written many titles for the Warpaint series of monographs as well as many articles for most of the popular historical aviation magazines.  His special interest in one-off prototypes and research types made co-authoring X-Planes of Europe a particularly enjoyable task.

Well, I've seemingly lost what's left of my mind. I'm starting on the journey to build the Meng King Tiger (Henschel) with the added interior, and workable tracks. Tonight, I'll start scraping the road wheels, and getting parts cleaned up. Wish me well.
